In this video English lesson, part of my Daily Dose of English series from 2010-2011, I look at Hot off the Press
This Daily Dose of English is hot off the press. Hot off the press is an idiom. That is, you cannot tell what the meaning is from the words alone. You have to know a little about the background of the idiom. A press is a machine that is used to print things. Often, it is used to print newspapers. That’s why we call the people who report the news the Press. Wait until the Press get hold of this story. It will be all over the newspapers.
