I am really confused. What is the ebst module fro news publishing? By News I mean news with images and everything else emedded, and of course a system which talks to both forum and poll-modules.

I have installed and tested Article, News and, after some serious hunting, AI.

AI could be really useful if it had less bugs, specially according to categories. AI have understood presentation.
News are great, but it lacks the idea of presentation. Article have some more presentation options, but lacks some basic things like a "print" and "send to a friend" and "pdf" option behind each article. Article also seems to have more features than News.

So I am a bit stuck. I want a news module aimed for good presentation and hopefully as good as any other news publishing software, in order to make a online magazine/ezine. I guess this is the only options?

IMHO, SmartSection is THE best Article/News/Section module there is currently available. It has a ton of features, it presents content in multiple formats, and it is the most SEO friendly module out there. Beyond that, it seems to be the best supported and most developed "news" module as well.

If you want to see it in action before you try it, check out http://mywebresource.com/modules/smartsection/

HTH.

Totally agree with JMorris we use smartsection for our sports site. maltasport

One problem though with smartsection or perhaps with all news/article modules is that when you have a lot of articles (1200 in our case), spotlight articles, etc, the database gets heavy and the query takes longer to execute. Perhaps one could advise how to optimise the database?????

I would suggest News144embed as the only one with auto resize for thumbnail image.
