Urges reporters on points (7)


I believe the answer is:


'urges' is the definition.
('press' can be a synonym of 'urge')

'reporters on points' is the wordplay.
'reporters' becomes 'press' (members of the press).
'on' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'points' becomes 'Es' (E is an example).

(Other definitions for presses that I've seen before include "Pushes" , "Machines for printing" , "Machines to extract, eg, olive oil" , "Irons" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
