Right or wrong, I always try to let common sense prevail. Why do we do
references? Not only to tell where
we got it but give enough of a reference if we need to retrace our steps or
if others need to go to, the roadmap is there.
Basically, I "give all" in the footnote - giving only the newspaper and
publishing data in the bibliography.
Article title in quotations, author, issue date, page #, column #, name of
newspaper in italics, and if from an online newspaper, give the url (even
though it may not be good in a month).
good information at
On reason for giving all you can is to facilitate a librarian who you may
ask to find and photocopy the
article ... make it easy on everyone.
