This is a problem with trn. It is in non-free (which I'll assume is correct.
I haven't checked), but it lists its section as news instead of non-free/news.
I'm reassigning this against trn.

Note the entry for Filename in the following:

bash$ dpkg -p trn
Package: trn
Version: 3.6-12
Priority: optional
Section: news
Maintainer: Matthew Vernon <matthew@debian.org>
Depends: libc6, libc6 (>= 2.1), libncurses4 (>= 4.2-3.1), inews
Recommends: mail-transport-agent
Suggests: ispell
Provides: news-reader
Architecture: i386
Filename: dists/unstable/non-free/binary-i386/news/trn_3.6-12.deb

Description: Threaded USENET news reader, based on rn
 trn is the most widely-used newsreader on USENET - even to the
 point of being a de-facto standard. It has a powerful full screen
 text mode user interface, where most actions are available at the
 press of a single key.  It is highly configurable.
 This version of trn reads news from a news server via NNTP (the
 Network News Transfer Protocol).  You must have a news server
 available - large sites usually provide a site-wide server.
 If you install a news server on your system (either containing
 just local newsgroups or with a partial or full USENET feed) you
 can configure trn to access it.
