I am having a problem getting accepted on Google News. I am running the Newspaper WP Theme alongside accelerated mobile pages. Everything seems fine however when i try to get approved on Google News i am rejected because the featured image of my posts doesnt show up on the AMP preview Google offers, however the images work fine when i view view AMP pages and only seem not to appear on the Google News preview tool which seems to be critical to getting approved. I have checked my AMP code and its all valid.
Here is what Google News said to me:
