No. Its presence stresses that there is one and only one story.

Whats the difference between having the dou or leaving it out?

每个 and 都 work in concert for emphasis. Speakers can and will leave out one or the other with no radical change in meaning.

每个……都 is a common paring in this case, so it'd sound smoother i.e. better with it.
