This is a poor defense of someone whose gender is inconsequential (and YOU brought it up). Her promotion seems predicated on her being open to "unconventional" ideas. The fact she had NO newspaper experience before coming to the P-G makes her irrelevant to the institution as a whole. The P-G needs someone who knows tech and newspapers. She knows only tech and has never managed anyone. That the Guild is at odds with her already is not a good thing. Morale is bad enough already in the newsroom. Did it ever occur to you the ultimate problem is she's too young and too academically-fixated to succeed? It sure occurred to me. Obviously Kid Robbie and the Big Shrib have a less realistic view of things, as usual.

You are correct the P-G website design is horrific and has been for years. That isn't her fault. No one said it was. But knowing that, why unleash a callow newbie somehow thinking she'll be their digital savior? Not happening.

The issues here are well-defined.

There should have been firings a long time ago for the sorry state of the PG website and that is not on her.

She is part of the problem in that she oversees some of the audience-reader involvement things you mention.

The Trib's embarrassing Upgruv, which won't last long, is their half-baked nod to digital. Ms. Sanina is the PG's nod. Not sure how long that will last. A decimated newsroom doesn't need any more drama. The Guild's unhappiness with her makes a bad situation worse no matter who is at fault. How can anyone who's never been managed become a capable manager? Even West Point has Basic Training.

Mila is an extremely bright and pleasant young woman, but two low-level TV gigs do not a journalist make, much less an assistant managing editor, much less a deputy managing editor. In an academic atmosphere, she would thrive. Not sure that's going to happen on North Shore Drive.
