Stars and Stripes, the daily newspaper for the U.S. Armed Forces, was recently ordered by the Department of Defense to move from its offices in downtown Washington, D.C., to a military base 30 miles away that serves as the hub of official Pentagon and military media operations. The relocation has raised concerns about a threat to Stars and Stripes’ special status as an independent news organization operating within DOD. In response to those concerns, ASNE issued a statement this morning urging Congress and the Pentagon to consider "alternatives that would ensure that Stars and Stripes can continue to independently provide uncensored news to American forces on the front lines and worldwide."
