This Is The Bug Report I Filed Using The Format Required by Support At WordPress

I did: tried to pull in the Kevin Costner post on the oil recovery
machine he invented. The post is at
http://newsfeed.time.com/2010/06/16/how-kevin-costner-went-from-fish-man-to-oil-spill-expert/

I saw: the Kevin Costner post and the reblog feature at the top of my
page because Time runs on WordPress.comVIP

I expected: the Coster post to be pulled when I reblogged but in fact
it is always whatever is the latest post from
http://newsfeed.time.com/ that is pulled in.

This Is The Reply I Received From WordPress Support

Hi David

Thanks for reporting this. This appears to be an issue with the Newsfeed blog – we’ll look into it.

This is weird. Using the reblog feature I tried to pull in this article on tropical storm Alex and it pulled in an article on Timothy Geitner.

My intention was to pull in the latest article from ‘Time magazine’ (see the comments on the last post here for an explanation of what this is all about)

I thought maybe I had not isolated the latest article, so I reblogged using the Timother Geitner article and bingo – I got the article I had wanted to use for the experiment – namely the tropical storm Alex article.

In case anything changes here with the feed, the wording the reblog has pulled in is

“Will Tropical Storm Alex Hit the Oil Spill?

Well before dawn Sunday morning, tropical storm Alex made landfall over Mexico. Now forecasters are trying to predict what will happen when the storm re-enters the Gulf of Mexico in a couple hours.
