A Reference to a Newspaper
The basic principles still apply - you answer as many of the seven questions as you can. Here's an example: I'm writing an essay on British politicians, and I want to quote a description of former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott after his bust-up with the then French Environment Minister, Dominique Voynet. The words I want to quote come from an editorial in the paper, so there's no writer's name given.
John Prescott 'played the male chauvinist pig' (The Guardian, 2000, p. 23).
And in the List of References at the end I just repeat the information, plus the fact that the quote comes from an editorial and the date.
The Guardian (2000) 'Editorial', 28 November, p. 23.
What do you do when the writer's name is given?
'..he adopted a standard macho attitude' (Voynet, 2000, p. 23)
and in the list at the end:
Voynet, D. (2000) 'Dear John', The Guardian, 28 November, p. 23.
