Breaking news: North Dakota has dismissed the “riot” charges against Amy Goodman for covering the protests against the Dakota Access pipeline.

A North Dakota state prosecutor had sought to charge Goodman with participating in a “riot” for filming an attack on Native American-led anti-pipeline protesters. The new charge came after the prosecutor dropped criminal trespassing charges.
