    Do a search on BHW. There is a nice tutorial about working with Yahoo Pipes.

    The issue may be with the site's feed

    go here
    Code:
    http://beta.feedvalidator.org/
    then enter the feed url and you'll see some possible cause.

    Solutions...........
    1. Contact site's admin and tell em to fix their feed.

    2. Scrape the site and create your own feed.

    well i created the pipe
    it is fetching the headlines but in the validator i am getting that the problem is that there is no description element

    so the output of my pipe is just headlines that lead to Null
    http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=29f616f68ca75afeb4850fd37bf2eebc

    i think i might have to customize something in the method you posted for this to work

    i am guessing since the element item.description doesnt exist thats causing the problem because i am assigning the content to it

    i think i gotta assign it to the new feed somehow

    but when debugging the loop it disappears
