I believe you will find that the actual feed is being blocked, Google reader still gets the original content from the site. are you able to access the RSS / ATOM feed link directly?
I would check your access log (or access denied log) for the rule that you are matching.
I can get to the feeds directly - like the RSS feed for Wired, but from my access.log I see it's throwing a 407 status when I am at the top of the group. 407 is: "Proxy Authentication Required."
Doesn't matter if I use IE, FF or Chrome (I've seen odd authentication issues with FF.) I have turned authentication off and back on in my rules, and it still throws the 407.
We had the same issue, I solved it by whitelisting from authenticaiton the URL *google.com/reader*
Tried that - no joy. Even if I turned off authentication - the problem still exists.
It seems that if there is any category blocking rules in line - they block this. The URL is categorized on Trusted Source as Internet Services, which we allow.
If I put myself in the Default User group - I get a HTTP/1.1 403 URLBlocked
If I put myself in the "Unfiltered" user group which uses coaching for sites that normally violate our policy, I get HTTP/1.1 403 CoachingSessionExceeded
Even if I global whitelist the URL, I get HTTP/1.1 403 URLBlocked
Turn off anything that refers to categories, and it works fine.

How are you whitelisting the URL? I looked back at our config, we just put it in the whitelist for an authenticated user rulset, not from the actual authentication ruleset.
I'm curious what shows up in the access.logs for it? That is how I figured out the string to use.
Arg, D'oh even.
The URL is listed by Trusted Source as "Anonymizing Utilities." That doesn't show up when you do a single URL lookup. I had to pull out the log entries:
Feel like a dolt for not going there earlier.
Thanks for the help - ticket is open with TrustedSource now.
The issue is now resolved. Trusted Source evaluated the URL and removed "Anonymizing Utilities" and all works now. Yay!
I've been working on this one for a while as well, I'm running 7.1.5 and my first rule is a Global URL Whitelist on *.google.com/reader*, but I'm still getting " You don't have permission to view this feed."
Probably a related issue is that I'm not able to run Google Sync in Chrome anymore either running 7.1.x when I was in 6.x. The sign in tool just spins and spins.
