Trouble fetching news

I have a kindle 2 (ver 2.5.3) and I am having trouble using the fetch news feature in Calibre, the feed I am most wanting is "the Sydney Morning Herald" one in the English (Australia) category however it seems to just be failing to fetch it and also when I try getting others it seems to get it but when I open it, it just says failed to get content. Is there something that I need to do to set this up or is it a broken feature?

b.t.w this worked for me once before but now just not, any help would be great.

BEst way to report broken news sources is to open a ticket for each. This usually happens when a website changes.

Great Work Kovid. This is the best customer service I have had for a free product, hands down. Houston Chronicle works great.

I've never written a recipe, but I'm going to see what I can do for Austin American Statesman and Waco Tribune. Where do I find the submission process for a recipe once I have tested it?
