“Stop the Presses”! he cried

“He cried”? Is that right? Seems alright to me, I guess. I mean, if I were to have been a newspaperman back when one would have called out for the presses to be stopped I probably would have done it in a way that could be described as a ‘cry’. Hold on…yeah, the dictionary says ‘cried’ can mean, ‘to call loudly; shout; yell (sometimes followed by out)’, so, sure, I think it totally fits the situation I’m imagining.
