I haven't had an actual newspaper for years. I did try stuffing my iPad in, but it didn't fit, so they're sat on top of the radiator!
I think the conventional wisdom is that forced drying cracks the leather. The wettest my boots ever got was from walking through bracken laden with water from a storm during the night, it ran down my legs and completely filled my boots. I stuffed them with newspaper when I took them off each night, but they were still wet when I went home four days later.
