Author not showing from TechRepublic/ZDNet RSS

Looking at the TechRepublic feeds, they are now using a different tag for authors, <media:credit role=“author”>. This does not show up in the stories view nor can be used for Intelligence Training.

Example from their feed:

<title>Microsoft gives Linux a security boost with these new attack detection tools</title>
<description>Linux endpoint detection and response will help Microsoft Defender customers secure Linux servers and networks against security nasties.</description>

Just looked and ZDNet is having the same issue.

Ok, I suspect this is a one-off, but in either case I fixed it and authors should now show up. TechRepublic is using the credit field instead of the RSS standard author field. Thanks for letting me know, doing your homework, and writing this up.
