Content Management Program for Online Newspaper

Does anyone has a suggestion for a content management program for an online newspaper?

I specifically need functionality that allows for article management: to be set up in queues, scheduled to be published online on a certain date, archived, etc.

Any suggestions?

I would be recommending Drupal (www.drupal.org) for this. Easily flexible, and for each post, you may change the publish date to a particular date so it only shows when you specify it to. This would be an all encompassing solution

However if you are purely dealing with 'blog style' articles, wordpress (www.wordpress.org) is also powerful as it specialises in this. It's easier to use than drupal but less features.

Have a look at demo sites for both systems to see what power you can get out of them. www.brusselsjournal.com uses drupal for example if that is the look you wanted to acheive (after heavy customization)
