Power of Truth

Bonnie Red Elk ran a story in the Wotanin Wowapi up in Fort Peck, Mont., outing a rogue tribal chairman and was fired a week later. Less than two weeks later, Red Elk published the first issue of the Fort Peck Journal. Less than a year after that, the Wotanin Wowapi shut down. That was January 2007. The Journal is still going strong.

Red Elk says the sign in the background was brought back from the 1992 Democratic National Convention. She says is speaks to the power of truth in the press.

She ought to know.
