The use of 'like' here, does it imply desire (We want the newspaper) or enjoyment (We enjoy the newspaper)?

So then, would Wir mag die Zeitung also work for this sentence- mag replacing mögen?

No, it is "ich mag" and "wir mögen".

Why not "We love the newspaper"?

That would be 'Wir lieben die Zeitung.'

I wrote,"We like the newspaper", and Duolingo came up with another translation: "We like the newspaper"!

You can do "ue" "oe" or "ae" instead of ü, ö and ä, I believe... If you're on a phone, you may be able to find accents by holding the key of the letter down
