Realistically Stars and Stripes has never been a real news source. It has been carried during wartime, and dropped after. Even since its origin during WWII that has been the pattern. Military Times carries the same stories, without government funding. And in 25 years in the military I never saw the damn rag anywhere but on a website. Not carried in the Exchange, Commissary or anywhere really. Whatever funding is given to Stripes can be used better elsewhere, especially in the digital age. It’s not like they have ever had real journalism anyway.
