Our News sitemap and google news publisher setup is correct, however we were seeing the following errors.
> AVC /sitemap_news.xml (43,254 errors)
> The Takeout /sitemap_news.xml (188 errors)
> Splinter /sitemap_news.xml (45 errors)
Search Interactions reached out to Google and they confirmed we aren’t doing anything wrong and the errors were old. I deleted the sitemaps and resubmitted so that errors would disappear.
