In the 7th edition of the APA Manual of Style, the rules for newsletters and editorials are as follows:


Newspaper article, online, editorial, group as author:

The Editorial Board. (2020, October 11). Save the planet, win a prize: Rising seas, raging fires, hotter temperatures - and a bit of positivity [Editorial]. The New York Times.

Group Name. (Publication date). Title of article [Letter to the editor]. Title of Newspaper. URL

(Note: Many newspapers have a separate editorial board. Some editorials are written by individuals, and others are written by editorial boards. The byline on this article indicates that the author is The Editorial Board.)

The information above is from the Oregon School Library Information System's "Newspaper Article Citation Examples for APA 7th Ed." document.
