Newspaper footnotes/endnotes share much of the same structure as journals and magazines. The author, headline, publisher, and especially the day/year are all central elements to a proper newspaper note-style citation. If the online edition of a paper was consulted as the reference, a URL should be included at the end of the citation.
Note-style citations of newspaper should include most or all of the following elements
1. Author Firstname Lastname, “Article Title: Subtitle,” Column Name, Title of Magazine, publication Month/Day/Year, URL.
2. Marguerite Fields, “Want to Be My Boyfriend? Please Define,” Modern Love, New York Times, May 4, 2008.
3. Julie Bosman, “Jets? Yes! Sharks? ¡Sí! In Bilingual ‘West Side,’” New York Times, July 17, 2008, http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/17/theater/17bway.html.
