Having been a Printer for 30 years, I know the process is not as simple as you see on TV even in this digital age.
You've still got to make the plates and set them up on the press.
Only on TV do you see stop the presses and instantaneously, the copy is changed. It is a bit more complicated than that, not to mention writing the
copy, editing, plates as I mentioned, set up on the press and packing and delivering.
So if the news was breaking on the net or TV, it more than likely wouldn't go to print until the next day.
