So wait, the fact that she's encouraging the next generation of journalists who are the boots on the ground here is a bad thing? Wow, didn't realize that the Kool Aid had gotten that bitter...
The Trib has done what, one story? Seriously, just get off your high horse.

Nothing wrong with young journalists being encouraged. They need that. There's plenty wrong with a professional implying student reporters would automatically outdo veteran reporters with decades of real-world experience. That level of skill is earned over time, through hard work. Smart student journos realize this and work at it, and they become the next generation of skilled veterans.

Yes, someone's on a high horse here, but it's not Megan's critics.

One other thing: the constant accusations of "bitterness" say more about the accusers than the accused.

Maybe the little kiddie took note of the fact that Deb couldn't be on the ground reporting live from all 14 schools. Or are student newspapers competition now?

I don't think anyone in their right mind expected Deb Erdley to cover all 14 schools. But I also don't expect anyone in their right mind to point readers away from their newspaper or media outlet to others.
When you're wrestling for every single reader or click, you don't tell people there are others doing a better job. And that's exactly what she said. Even if she had said something like, "We've got the best coverage here, but if you want even more, go to these student newspapers." That would still have not been great, but it would have been better than what she did.
