One of the default widgets in WordPress consumes RSS feeds and publishes a list of links to the content.  Is that sufficient or are you looking to do something different?

I was looking for a site to take our rss feed and showcase a specific post in the same manner that I have it on my site. So I was more looking for a way to take rss feeds with all the data and render the same info in a news section of another site.

So for example, if IGN had some news that I wanted to feed with featured images that I wanted to pull over to my site I would like to able to use their rss feed to take all the data and display their news in my news section.

Does that make sense?

I understand what you're asking for, yes.

Before I answer, let me explain why this is a bad idea for you.  Linking to someone else's content is all well and good and doesn't hurt you.  Reposting someone else's content is not so good.  When Google sees duplicate content on two different sites, it tends to penalize the copying site unless you take steps to tell Google where it should apply the ranking credit to.  Even if you credit properly, if you have lots of content copied you run the risk of Google deciding you are a "thin content" site and also applying a penalty.  Create your own content, link to others is a better path to long term success.

That being said, what you want to search for are plugins called "autoblog."  Most of these are paid plugins, but there are a couple of free ones:

These should do what you are asking for.
