Wall Street Journal no longer downloads

After the last Calibre update, my WSJ download no longer will download because it encounters errors.

An example is Job: Fetch news from The Wall Street Journal
**tuple**: ('XMLSyntaxError', u"Failed to parse QName 'astronome:', line 1, column 281").

Why did it stop downloading?

I get the same error. But the first time I got the message was one day before I upgraded to the latest version of Calibre. So I don't think the the problem is because of the new version.
I used to convert te WSJ to the mobi format.

Thanks for replying. I use the MOBI format. My downloads started to fail after updating the last two upgrades.

Ah well looks like something has changed on the WSJ site that is breaking conversion to MOBI, will be fixed in the next release.

The WSJ download for me is working again. ( there were only 3 days last week when it stopped with an error message. ) My output format is mobi. The download from today was 6.2 mb and took about 5 minutes.
