Newspapers - automatic cover art and author metadata setting on download

Hi... apologies in advance for the basic newbie question. I am no programmer so although my question may be feasible via some batch mode command or such like that is probably beyond me.

I am using Calibre on a MacBook Pro and I have it downloading Newspapers via RSS feeds. By default the author is set to calibre and the cover art is set to the calibre bookshelf icon.

I would like for each newspaper to set the cover art and author automatically. I have saved the cover art in a subdirectory of the Calibre Library ready for use. e.g. when I download "The Independent [Monday 27 Feb 2012]" I would like the author to be "The Independent" and the cover art to be a .jpg that I previously saved in the library.

This is so that my library tagging is much neater and when emailed to my Kindle4 is also "neater".

Thanks for any insight of whether this is feasible.
