Amy Goodman, host of the New York City-based leftist news programme Democracy Now! was charged with criminal trespass [lawserver.com] 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 [wikipedia.org], after the protest was reported on her show.
