I would strongly disagree with that aavailable s far as Drupal goes. 
With the VERY LARGE base of functionality in add-on modules, the need 
for programming is generally extremely limited.

Drupal is IMO the easiest and most flexible CMS to work with as a 
developer. It has an active and helpful user base, it is widespread, 
tested, stable, powerful and extremely flexible. There are, of course, 
in fact already newspaper sites using it. I would actually be hard 
pressed to imagine a feature that you might need that is not already 
available. If you have something specific, let us know.
