English term or phrase: "come in over the wires in the day""running"
The story had come in over the wires in the day, and many papers hadn’t even bothered running it.

Chinese translation:通过专线,报导
Explanation:
消息已在白天传到各媒体,然而很多报纸却不屑予以报导。
Medias have their own communication wires for reporters to send back news. Run means report on the story.
I think 通过专线 could be omitted in the Chinese translation. People often write news come in over the wires. It becomes a way of writing. In Chinese I guess we don't really have to translate it so long as we get the meaning conveyed here.
