Thanks for the reply, but it does not produce a particularly satisfying solution. I'm using different applicationName values for various news providers to differentiate them in the Admin, since each unique applicationName has a custom set of metafields and, therefor, custom insert/update interfaces. The unique applicationNames also retrict the listing of News Item in each provider to those associated only with that applicationName -- the admin interface doesn't filter on provider name.
Setting all the applicationNames to the same value (and then fixing all the entries in the database to allow the exiting items to appear on the site and in the admin) causes ALL news items regardless of provider to appear in each provider's list. This, of course, will undoubtedly lead to confusion when my client tries to insert/update news items.
What would I need to do to restrict the listing of news items by provider name, rather than applicationName?
