In case anyone is too young or doesn't remember in the old days the news used to come written on paper and then delivered to houses, often by children or teenagers, so that's what a newspaper is.

"He eats" instead of "he is eating" should not be a mistake... :(

It's the same spelling with "drengen" and "drengene"? I hear them both as the same.

Try going on Forvo.com and looking up the words pronounced by native speakers. The TTS does not do a good job distinguishing the two.
