Answer

Age doesn't make it a scholarly source. Newspapers like the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are a bit more academic than other newspapers.  However, newspaper articles are not the same thing as scholarly peer-reviewed journal articles.  This chart highlights some of the differences between scholarly and popular sources.
