Templates can (and often are) different across different sites.  In the
case of Commons, it looks like {{cite news}} is just a wrapper for {{cite
journal}}.  Looking a bit more closely, it seems that the "newspaper"
parameter is not used in the Commons version, so I moved the content from
there to "journal" and it seems to work.

Cheers,
Craig
