It's a stock newspaper, because otherwise they shows would have to pay for the rights to use an actual newspaper. Story here:

Very interesting...I honestly had no idea that would be an issue. Wow, pretty cool!

The prop comes from a small newspaper prop company called the Earl Hays Press in Sun Valley (CA). Started in 1915, Earl Hays is one of the oldest newspaper prop companies, and the paper in question was first printed in the 1960s (note the top-hat ad on the lower left), then offered as a "period paper," better suited for "Mad Men" (where it has not appeared) than "Scrubs" (where it has). The screenshots don't actually reveal the same prop — just various printings of the same file. The front is blank and can be customized, but the inside and back page are always identical. In fact, in "No Country for Old Men", when Tommy Lee Jones is reading a paper at a diner, the section in his hands is the same as the one sitting on the table, suggesting that the prop master bought two copies to make the paper look fuller, but made the mistake of leaving the stock spread facing up.

Production companies use prop newspapers instead of real ones because getting clearance from an actual publication is usually more work than it's worth in potential fees and bureaucracy. So prop masters buy a stack of Earl Hays fake papers, which cost just $15 each.

Excuse the double post, I didn't realize you were already highlightning that it's a well known prop that has been used in the industry for decades.

Don't worry about the double post, because it's not. I gave the short form answer, your post was more of a term paper compared to mine!

I like the old movie newspaper headline front page that had a 'New Tax Code Under Fire' article headline to the lower left whatever the fake headline would be.
