Florida daily buys student-run paper

Is the epitome of student newspaper success or what? First the news from earlier today that mtvU (a division of MTV, which is a division of Viacom) purchases the 450-newspaper network run by College Publisher* and then later in the day the Associated Press reports that a Florida daily newspaper has purchased the student-run newspaper at Florida State University.

* See my related link at Rich’s Musings on why the College Publisher purchase is a good thing.
