I can't tell you anything for sure, but an essay I've been translating was originally written tate, but when they put it on the web yoko, they left in the "右のごとき"s even though they updated the kana and kanji from the pre-war-style to post-war-style.

I would imagine that whether or not they would change a newspaper article would depend on how much copyediting control the newspaper has and how much the author has, but I really have no idea.
