Nope, if by fetching your news feed you mean get all the individual stories comprising the news feed.

There is nothing in the API.

They're simulating the News Feed by posting friends' statuses and the last update of their profiles.

If you read their announcement of the Facebook app http://blog.netvibes.com/?2007/08/02/140-facebook-meet-netvibes-netvibes-introduces-the-facebook-widget, you'll see a plea:

"Facebook does not currently allow outsider providers to access the News Feed. In other words, Facebook won't let us display your News Feed from the front page in our widget (or change your status for that matter.)"
