I'm using Goose extractor to parse some news articles. however for some articles ie (http://ift.tt/1JlUiNP) I get an error referring to the author, as it is stored as
[u'Forename Surname'], this produces a
psycopg2.ProgrammingError: when I try to load it into a postgreSQL db. All other information seems to load just fine.
I've tried using
author = str(article.author) and
author.encode("utf-8") however I still get the same error.
How can I convert this field to a normal text string?
