We're seeing instances where news articles are not showing up in Google News or are taking extra long to show up (over 4-12 hours, if ever). I've checked  Google WebMaster Tools and there are no errors specific as to why these stories would not have been accepted/indeed.  I've verified they are indeed in our newssitemap - which is updated in near realtime. We can resubmit the sitemap successfully, but the story is still not included. I've done general and news specific searches using and cannot locate the content. Any assistance would be appreciated.
