I have python 2.7.2 and it does not like class in the code you provided. Now when I take out [ class="date"], this is returned:
   [<span class="date">March 5, 2014</span>, <span class="date">March 5, 2014</span>]
 
This is the code I am using: "data = soup.find_all(name="span") 
print (data)"
1. it returns today's date instead of the actual date
2. returns it twice
