    story

    The story touched off an international scandal.
    What could "the story " be here? No context.
    I think it might be a piece of news?
    Thanks.

    Dear yuhan:

    I think you are probably correct. It is certainly a common way to refer to a piece of news.
    ...of course, with no further context, it's impossible to be sure...

    Best wishes,

    Petra
