How can I accomplish this:
1st. We are going to have a content type called news.
2nd. It will have a publish date field.

The news item should be published on that date. We dont want administrators to go and press the publish button, it should be done automatically on that date.

Maybe with a timer job? Any code or example please send it?

Thank you

Are we talking pages or list items?

Publishing pages can be scheduled OOTB;

List items can be filtered via views, and similarly aggregation parts such as CQWP can be configured to only show items with a specific published date compared to today. No coding needed if I understand your requirement correctly.
