She’s 3rd brightest but hard “Gal” to see

Fictional newspaper

She's 3rd brightest but hard "Gal" to seeThis very text appears in the headline of a newspaper in various films and tv-series all around the world.

It is a fictional newspaper, used just for show. It has a familiar look but all content is fictional.

Any idea why? Perhaps this:

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. #

The image even appears in advertising clips.
