BBC rss on Windows Vista?

I purchased my computer a year ago, and it is a Dell Inspiron 1525 using Widows Vista. Here is my question: why is there a BBC rss feed on this computer?
Since I'm not computer savvy and many here are, I started thinking about this awhile ago and thought I would ask someone here if they knew the answer. It just came with the computer, so I've left it and do use it daily. But, we aren't in England, so why is Dell using the BBC feed instead of one from some American media company?

(This goes into the file of dumb questions I always wanted to ask.)

Please consider adopting a rescue animal. So very many need a furr-ever home and someone to love them! And if we all spay/neuter our pets there won't be an overpopulation to put to death.

Um, could you ask me the second question in the file instead?

Everybody PC manufacturer has a different set of junk they push on you. I assume the vendors pay for the placement so BBC must see an advantage.

Maybe they were too intellectually honest to put an rss feed for MSNBC, CNN, FOX News, etc on there?
