Democracy Now! reporter Amy Goodman 'rioting' charges rejected by judge after filming attack on Native American protesters

 


Update 17 October 2016, 2:55 pm ET—A North Dakota judge rejected riot charges against award-winning journalist Amy Goodman after she filmed an attack on Native American anti-pipeline protesters.

Ms Goodman, the host of Democracy Now!, surrendered to authorities on Monday after North Dakota state prosecutor Ladd Erickson last Friday filed new charges against her.

"This is a vindication of freedom of speech, of the First Amendment, of the public's right to know," she told reporters, calling the media the "underground railroad of information".
