    To us newspapers seem to be made of very thin, quite rough paper. But this is in fact an illusion. Their true nature is only revealed on TV or in a movie: thick, clean white paper as crease-free and smooth as silk.

      And reporters on TV and film newspapers, even extremely junior ones, are constantly in and out of the editor's office, with the editor having a close relationship with them and taking a keen interest in their stories, rather than asking who the fuck they are.

        A film's budget (or director's indifference) can be assessed by studying those newspapers in more detail. Cheap rubbish = headline for the plot ("Missing scientist found dead!") pasted onto a front page which on closer inspection has real news in the margins, usually from the wrong time and place, and in a different font.

        (as parodied in Simpsons and the like)
