    I was analyzing my server logs this morning and noticed quite a few GET requests with user agent "newspaper/0.0.9.8". These requests are for different pages in my blog and they come as frequent as twice a minute. I checked the IPs and they seem to belong to Google/GoogleCloud... Any ideas what it is? I searched online for "newspaper/0.0.9.8" but only found that newspaper 0.0.9.8 is a "Simplified python article discovery & extraction." - see this. What it has to do with Google? It is obviously not a Googlebot, GB has different UA.
    Here is the list of some IPs originating these "newspaper/0.0.9.8" requests:
    104.197.21.199
    130.211.137.164
    104.154.40.125
    23.251.152.81
    104.197.21.199
    130.211.153.121
    104.197.46.230
