Here’s the story from MediaPost:

There’s been a lot of talk about how the Web has disrupted traditional media, especially newspapers that used to have monopolies in print.But, for all the business trauma suffered by newspapers, the Internet also has given writers the ability to publish articles that otherwise might have never seen the light of day.

Apparently the school superintendent didn’t want a story to run in the school paper, so the kids did the next best thing and took it to the web.

The latest example comes from Fairbault, Minnesota, where local high school students have taken their newspaper online in response to censorship by the school district, according to
The Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Colleen Coplick from Buzzworthy wonders why the kids weren’t on the web in the first place, but asks a good question:

So, what do you think – is it news that students are embracing citizen journalism and moving online, or should they – the so called Net Natives – already be there?

So, what do you think. Is this news or not?
