I need to setup a news website for a customer, but I can't decide on what CMS to use. It can be free-open source or commercial (below $100). It must be news specialized, easy to customized, good functionality, scalable (the CMS should serve well at around 100,000 page views per day) and is prefereably PHP&MySQL.
So far I found only ezPublish which seem close to my need. But I don't have any experience with any CMS so far, so I am not sure if that's the correct choice.
Please give me some suggestion.
