    The WaPo is a great newspaper but I doubt if the print version uses 
rotogravure. Almost all halftone is made with computer generated plates 
these days. Same with the rest of the requirements, these all apply to 
printing technology that is long obsolete.
    The may be publications that are printed this way but I suspect all 
are specialist and not high volume daily papers.
