Under rare circumstance an uncaught error is produced and the affected RSS entry is discarded: when the feedreader component is in debug log mode, and at least one entry in the RSS feed does not contain a title and does not contain a pubDate tag.

In this case an error like the following is logged (the following comes from a tox test run):                    110 ERROR    Error doing job: Future exception was never retrieved
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/username/home-assistant/home-assistant/.tox/py36/lib/python3.6/site-packages/", line 398, in __getattr__
    return self.__getitem__(key)
  File "/Users/username/home-assistant/home-assistant/.tox/py36/lib/python3.6/site-packages/", line 356, in __getitem__
    return dict.__getitem__(self, key)
KeyError: 'title'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: object has no attribute 'title'

I amended the RSS fixture for one test case to capture this issue.
