A great place to try out all of the free systems is at the opensourceCMS site. They have everything setup and installed. You can go try out the back end, publish some sample content and see which one appeals to you.

You need to be more specific as to what you're looking for. Virtually every CMS can be used to publish news; by almost definition that's the section of any site that's most often updated, after all.

What volume of content are you looking to post-- an entire metropolitan daily, or just a few articles? What is your budget? What is your technology stack?

There are plenty of content management systems designed specifically for news publishing:

CampWare
CuteNews
EllingtonCMS
EzyMedia
PHPcow
ProsePoint (based on Drupal)
Saxotech

But these days, it might get more bang for the buck by customizing a generic content framework. Drupal, for instance, is running behind sites like The Onion and the New York Observer (see [groups.drupal.org...] for more).

When you are talking about news you should really separate your decision into the CMS for the backend and what you use to output.

The very best backend CMS's are from companies like McClatchey, Saxotech and AHN. They do news cms's that are honed for the content type.

Cutenews, ellingtonCMS, phpCow, etc are cheap

u can even make wordpress into a great news site. wordpress is really simple to add and has tons of free widgets and perfect for a new related site.

I was able to cram a css template and homebrew php cms into textpattern, exactly how I had it looking and acting in the previous incarnation.

It depends in part on the size of the site. WordPress is good for a weekly or small daily newspaper. I know a number of larger newspaper sites that use Drupal, but I would recommend it only if you have tech people with available time.

I personally like ExpressionEngine for newspaper sites (not free, but only $250) especially because it works well with classifieds and categorizing content.

You may want to have a look at Django. Not really a CMS buy you can quickly develop a very flexible one with it. It was built by a newspaper for their own uses. The modules were designed to allow for rapid development.

There's an idea. And you could have a look at Django CMS to use as a dev model.

Similarly with Expression Engine and Code Igniter (CI being a dev framework and EE being a CMS built upon it).

... not that I've used either one, to be honest

Well that's cool! Is that from the original Django dev team?

(sorry for the slightly OT bend)

I don't know anything about it. Despite one friend saying it's the only way to go, I've neve been bitten by the Python in any form.
