    Default the story came out

    The story came out just as the newspaper was going to press.

    What does 'the story came out" mean here?

    Thanks!

    It means that the story was revealed/discovered and passed on to the general public.

    Thanks, Albiet. But could it mean that the story was put into the newspaper just as it was going to press?

    That's a possibility, Laura. Sometimes, if a story is big enough, the editors will make changes to get a big story in.
