Newspaper titles are never abbreviated, although a leading "The" may be dropped.

The edition (place of publication) of the newspaper is indicated after the title only if the title does not make it obvious.

If there is no author identified, cite the title information. Do not use "anonymous".

Section information, if present, replaces volume and issue information. Only the beginning page is given and the column location is added.

If no section info is found (e.g. letter, number or section name) end the date information with a colon and the page and column numbers.
