'Failed: Fetch news from The New Republic'

When trying to download The New Republic, I get a conversion error message saying:
'Failed: Fetch news from The New Republic'
This does not seem to happen with any other publications.
I am running Calibre 0.9.17 (though the problem persisted in 0.9.16 as well). My best guess is that it has something to do with TNR overhauling their site last week.

This is the info I get when I ask for details:

i would need a valid login id and a valid password for tnr. you can put in a dummy password for a while and send it to me. once i fix the recipe you can change your password back to something secure.

I used to maintain the new republic recipe and I have given up. The reason is, even if you are a current subscriber (I am), TNR makes only a very small portion of each issue available online when that issue is out on the street. It will continue to publish some more from the same issue over time (but never the whole issue). This kind of habit makes a scheduled automatic grabbing impossible.
