When writing an essay do you underline or italicize a

In writing the titles of newspapers, do not italicize the word the, even when it is part of the title (the New York Times), and do not italicize the name of the city in which the newspaper is published unless that name is part of the title: the Hartford Courant, but the London Times. Italicize the titles of comic books, manga, and graphic novels, but put the titles of individual comic strips in quotation marks. Only italicize very long UTube videos such as hour long TED Talks. The short ones go in quotation marks. In general, always defer to the publication’s choices. Italicize titles in these categories as well.
Here are some specific examples:

For the titles of newspapers, italicize both the city and the newspaper's title. No cap or ital should be used for “the” in either newspapers or magazines, with the exception of The Sporting News (because of its common usage). Also, if The Sporting News is mentioned often in an article it is acceptable to intersperse the abbreviation TSN after the first time it is spelled out. We do not ital “The” in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, etc..

Titles of Books, Plays, Articles, etc.: Underline

Titles. Italicize the titles of things that can stand by themselves. Thus we differentiate between the titles of novels and journals, say, and the titles of shorter poems, short stories, articles, and episodes (for television shows). The titles of these shorter pieces would be surrounded with double quotation marks. Example: The first chapter of Alice in Wonderland is titled “Down the Rabbit Hole.”
