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.

    If they're only planning on 40 permanent jobs, that says to me that they're planning on skimping on maintenance.

    Perhaps. It does seem light compared to the Alaska pipeline which has a staff of 800 people for a similar volume and shorter length. But maybe the thing is much more automated, being 40 years newer and all.
