Have you tried sprinkling the newspaper with baking soda to pull out any odors?

Sprinkle the newspaper with dry baking soda, seal in a plastic bag for a few days. Vacuum on low with a brush attachment to remove the baking soda. That should make it smell good again.

I have had good luck sprinkling baby powder in the pages of old books. shake out excess after a few days. Do not breathe in the powder dust. It is a lung irritant.

Ive also heard of putting a book and/or newspaper in a paper with with kitty litter. The litter is supposed to absorb the smells.
