What is a good RSS reader for Ubuntu that features a desktop alert mechanism where the alerts include details of each update?

i.e. I want to use it to be notified of new Stack Overflow questions with a certain tag, so would want to see details of the questions, not just be alerted by a flashing light, etc.

I don't know any RSS reader that can do that. But there are a few apps that alerts you about new messages and tags.
