      This is the actual report from Defense News. Why not link directly to it?

        Because there's like 674 ads on the linked page (if you're not running ad blocker)

          The article OP linked to has 24 trackers blocked by uBlock Origin, where the original source has 8 trackers blocked. Either way, get an ad blocker, I suppose, but we should read the original source wherever possible to support the actual journalism

            Reading the original source with an ad blocker installed may not be providing as much support as you imagine.

              I have an ad blocker, I turned it off to see the predicted mess underneath.

              And yes, 674 was an exaggeration, it's called hyperbole

                Using Perfect Web Browser on iPad (the best ad blocker I know for iOS), the site blocks my access completely. So the number of web-malignancies on the site may as well be infinite.
