I'd like to be able to cite a newspaper article in LaTeX, but Bibtex seems to have no date field (it has year and month, but that doesn't seem sufficient). Is there any good way around this?

You could also use the biblatex package which allows the date as an optional field on article.

You could try using double curly braces for the Author field i.e., Author={{China Daily}} I hope it helps

Apparently you can insert the date in the month field--see these comments on the "Blog on LaTeX Matters".
