News.google.com (Something went wrong. Please try again)

Description of the issue:
News.google.com has been working fine but recently it keeps showing “Something went wrong. Please try again” message. This issue only happens if I select Trackers & ads blocked (standard or aggressive). If I select “Use all trackers & ads”, news will display fine.

Exact URL of the website in question:

**Did the issue present with default Shields settings? **
yes

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?
Yes

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes):
This issue only happens if I select Trackers & ads blocked (standard or aggressive).

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?
Yes

Brave version (check About Brave):
1.25.72

Tested this, seems fine here.

Also tested in Brave beta, can you test in Beta? @dook

Try clearing all browsing data, that fixed the issue for me yesterday.

Thanks for looking into it! Google News is now working on Desktop. However, I tested it on mobile (ver. 1.25.71) and clearing cache as suggested but it’s not working. To workaround this I’ll have to turn off the “Block cross-site trackers” option. Switching from “Top stories” to “For you” will show the “Something has gone wrong” error.
