IEnumerable<NewsPage> pages = new List<NewsPage>();
var oldPages = pages.Where(p => p.Created < DateTime.Now.AddMonths(-6));

Easiest to use Linq...if you don't have extremely many pages that is...but in a scheduled job you should be fine.

It sounds like a job for the built-in Archive function. It allows you to set an expiration date (your 6 months) and where the Page should be moved when the page has expired. You can use the "SetDefaultValues" on your NewsPageType in order to apply the 6 month threshold.

You can access the Page specific settings via Tools -> Manage Expiration and Archiving. Remember to start the Scheduled Job named "Archive Function".

Yup...or leave them and hide them instead from listing. Moving pages breaks incoming links and hurts seo... :)
