News panel rss fails to load

I’d like present this rss feed in grafana <![CDATA[Amazon Web Services Service Status]]>
However, the feed fails to load when <![CDATA[Amazon Web Services Service Status]]> is entered into | display | url

Selecting ‘use proxy’ results in same error.
Enabling debug logging in grafana.ini does not produce further info.

It is possible to curl <![CDATA[Amazon Web Services Service Status]]> from the instance on which grafana runs so it would seem network access is not blocked.
Also the grafana news feed - Grafana Labs Blog on Grafana Labs - will load. So, could the problem be due to the differing url format?
How can I present the AWS feed?
