4. Steven Erlanger, "Pact on Israeli Pullback Hinges on Defining Army's Role," New York Times, sec. A, May 8, 1998.
"Because a newspaper's issue of any given day may include several editions, and items may be moved or eliminated in various editions, page numbers are best omitted. (CMS sec. 17.188)

bibliography:

Newspapers are usually cited in notes, not bibliographies. (CMS sec. 17.191) If a bibliographic entry is included, it would be formatted as follows:

Erlanger, Steve. "Pact on Israeli Pullback Hinges on Defining Army's Role," New York Times, May 8, 1998, sec. A.
Chicago
(Author-Date)
It is preferable to include newspaper references in running text (CMS 17.191).

Example: In his 8 May 1998 New York Times article "Pact on Israeli Pullback Hinges on Defining Army's role," Steven Erlanger states...

If the newspaper citation needs to be included in the reference list, follow this model:
 

Erlanger, Steven. 1998. Pact on Israeli pullback hinges on defining Army's role. New York Times, May 8, sec. A.
