They learned to doubt conventional wisdom when their elders told them that an insurgent named Barack Hussein Obama could never win the White House. And they joined the ranks of professional journalists at a time when older reporters were being laid off in droves and venerable publications were shutting down.

As a result, they’re supple. And unlike some of their colleagues, who came of age in the days of bulldog editions and ink-stained fingers, they are at home in the social-media sphere and are accustomed to working at digital speed.
