I'm sure I've reported a similar problem in the past but can't locate it - if you so a site seach, the news tab does not work as expected.

The Views, Encyclopedia and Forum tabs seem to work correctly but I'm seeing a subset of results on the news tab that includes no news articles at all.

Interesting. I seem to be getting more things in the news section than I would expect. When I search "Barefoot Gen" I have 214 hits under the news tab, but it includes things that are also under the views tab (like reviews), and the encyclopedia tab (company/staff/cast encyclopedia pages). I also get news stories that are not listed on Barefoot Gen's encyclopedia page, which links to only 16 stories. Including this one, which does have Barefoot Gen greenlinked.

There are two types of greenlinks - "topic" and "reference". If the greenlink is set to a "reference" it won't show on the target page at all.
In the case of the news article you link, the greenlink hasn't been confirmed so it IS on the manga page, but as an unconfirmed (grey) link (there are 5 green confirmed inbound links and 23 grey unconfirmed).
