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.

    So this bitch was a ringleader in an act of vandalism carried out explicitly so she could 'report' it... while of course pretending to be a journalist and not the eco-terrorist she actually is. Not only is the consensus here that what she did was praiseworthy, attempts to hold her and her co-conspirators responsible for the damage they caused is an abuse of government power, absolute proof that law enforcement is bought and paid for by the 'big corporations.'

    Upon what did you base this ridiculous screed? Please do share with us, as we could all use a laugh at your expense.

    Please tell us which acts of eco-terrorism have ever been perpetrated by Amy Goodman [wikipedia.org]?

    Granted, she doesn't suffer fools like you gladly, but that's really a public service, not terrorism, eco or otherwise.
