Amy Goodman, host of the New York City-based leftist news programme Democracy Now! was charged with criminal trespass by the North Dakota state's attorney (prosecutor). The charge was changed to riot, then was dismissed due to lack of evidence when Goodman appeared in court on Monday. The charges stemmed from her presence at a protest in September against construction of the Dakota Access (Bakken) oil pipeline, after the protest was reported on her show.
Amy Goodman: I now claim martyrdom and have achieved reporter "cred", and I'm going to ride this horse long long after it is dead and beaten.
I find your lack of faith disturbing.
