Well, Sara Ganim who broke the Penn State sex scandal, won the Pulitzer prize at 24, so it is possible to win top journalistic awards as a 20-something reporter. If Lois is either tenacious enough or lucky enough, her getting the Superman break as a 20-something reporter is believable. The bigger issue may be is it believable that someone that age would be a top reporter at a major Metropolitan newspaper. That was where LnC seemed to go too far. It was not even that Lois and Clark were top reporters, but they seemed to be the lead reporters without question, but a lot of that has more to do with narrative efficiency than anything else.
