30 or 40 years ago that would have been workable.  Back in those days every
major newspaper
had a building, or complex of buildings, which housed the journalists and
the presses at a single
location.  Even then, office=newspaper would have been sub-optimal since
the journalists were
in an actual office but the presses (and typecasters, etc.) were not in an
actual office.

These days the journalists and presses are often in different locations.
Several newspapers
serving different localities may share an owner and a single printshop.
Many newspapers may,
independently of each other, contract the printing to an independent press
(which may have no
journalists of its own).  There are even more complex financial
relationships than those, but
the result is still that the presses may be in a building far removed from
the journalists (and
advertising, and management).
