Earlier this semester, the Daily Cal announced that it would cut back production due to budget restraints and, you know, the whole print-media-is-dying thing. This week, Syracuse University’s Daily Orange follows suit.

The Daily Orange is eliminating its print edition on its weakest day, Friday, and publishing content online instead, much like the Daily Cal’s Wednesday plan. The Syracuse paper, also independent of its university since 1971, has lost money because of legal trouble and not enough advertising revenue.

We hope the other daily can regroup, and we wish them the best of luck. It’s a hard-knock life out there–we should know.
