comment Reading a newspaper
Here are t'shuvos that discourage newspaper reading in passing: Iggres Moshe YD 2:76, Minchas Yitzchok 3:79. Not posting as an answer because the question specifically asked for direct discussions of the subject.

comment Breaking Shabbos to keep future Shabbos(os)?
@DoubleAA I understood it to be saying the whole thing is a gzeras hakasuv. I remember learning a a chakira in yeshiva which is the default and which is the exception; the three or all the other mitzvos. [On the one hand the gemorah brings a limud for those three, on the other it brings a limud of "vechay bahem" etc. for other mitzvos].

@DoubleAA I'm not sure what you mean? The proof is that we don't judge by severity but only three specific sins are do not override life by Divine decree.

@IsaacMoses It's not an exact duplicate, that question is asking about a non-Shabbos observer, this is about an atheist (denies Torah/G-d). There are differences in Halacha.
