First thing, are you authorised to place all those items on your site - there are copyright issues to consider, and restrictions on what you probably can and can't post to your own site (as opposed to simply providing links to the source material).

Maybe you can place RSS feeds from those newspaper sites into Custom Modules. or similar. Use the News Feed function of Joomla; all you need is the URL to the RSS feed for those news sources.

I suppose you'd start with a "news" template something likethis news template from Template Monster

Just search google for "news templates joomla".
