Everyone on TV reads the same newspaper

the same newspaper

Everybody on TV and in movies reads the same newspaper, it seems… and they’ve been reading that standard newspaper prop for decades. At a guess: paranoid studio lawyers don’t want to use real newspapers because they think that they might get a copyright complaint from the paper (despite this incidental use being clearly fair use), so they insist that set-dressers all use the same prop that’s fully rights-cleared.
