Thank you for reporting this issue. The problem with the external rss you are trying to import is that the date time format in the xml is <pubDate>Thu, 20 Jan 2011 1:07:00 +0000</pubDate>. The date time of the other rss feed, for example destructoid.com is <pubDate>Mon, 17 Jan 2011 14:32:22 Z</pubDate>. The difference between the two date formats is in the UTC presentation (+0000 and Z). I logged this problem as a bug with ID 105387.

The problems you get with that particular feed come from the fact that the feed is not valid. You can see that for yourself here:
We're still using the .Net fed parser (System.ServiceModel.Syndication.SyndicationFeed.Load) and it doesn't parse that feed. However, we have logged a feature request for a parser, which will parse invalid feeds as well.
Any progress on this? Because the bug still exists, can you please tell us so work around for this issue on Sitefinity?
There are some errors on the pubDate... why doesn't Sitefinity let the feed get parsed even though?
The below issue is being generated on my project. Is there a workaround to allow this pubDate pass or ignore the pubDate error?
