Is the newsbot stuck in an infinite loop?

Seems to be repeating itself a lot... any explanation for the hiccups?

just a suggestion, but maybe turn it off until the problem is sorted out?

Aaaabtheeee...aaabtheeee...aaabtheeee...
Aaa..that's all, folks!

It's probably just getting the same story through many different sources.

One of the sources made a change. Because the newsbot apparently matches not only the title, but the content, the newsbot thought a data change was totally new content.

It's not in a loop; looking at what it pulled yesterday versus today, it's functioning properly.

Checking back now, it looks to be behaving.

The news feeds get polled every 30 minutes, so if it were confused, the repetition would be horrible right now.
