Contributors cannot edit News Stories

While a user belonging to the Contributor group can edit content anywhere on the SharePoint Portal - they cannot edit news stories. They can add new news stories but can't go back and edit them.

This is because, to edit News Stories, you need "Manage Area" permissions enabled for the particular user. By default only the Web Designer and above can do this.

This is ridiculous, the news system is a waste of time!
