What I mean is that in the News Fetch setup down near the bottom on the right there is a choice "Delete downloaded news after X days". You have made me think this means it will delete old news from the Library only. My brain had it both deleting from the library AND the Kindle. Since it autoLOADS the news on the Kindle, I made the extrapolation that is also autoDELETED the files from BOTH. This appears to not be true.
I guess this is a new feature request!
