Question Adding fav news website on Mac OSX 10.6.8

I'm a newbie using Calibre on OSX 10.6.8 The manual http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/news.html
Quote:
"To make calibre download the feeds and convert them into an ebook, you should click the Fetch news button and then the Add a custom news source menu item."
The problem is when I click the Fetch news button I don't see any "Add a custom news source menu item" such as the illustration shows. How can I get to this menu item?

I found the info in the following thread that partially solves the problem, but I still think there's a bug in the program or in the manual, because they don't match.

Thanks! Marvelous program you've created. As I say above, the manual doesn't match the screen, so while that will get me past the problem I think either the manual or the program has a bug.
