The chosen guests of honors may not be part of the A-list celebrity crew.
But among journalists, they highlight the future of the industry.
Student journalists were among those chosen to attend the White House correspondents’ dinner with media outlets.
For instance, the Huffington Post guests included the Kansas City students who ousted their principal after digging into her background.
CNN also invited college journalists as their guests, as well. Yahoo News also included students as their VIP guests, according to the Washington Post.
Kudos to the up-and-coming.
