◼ Hoopa Tribe shuts down Two Rivers Tribune over controversial articles; tribal newspaper staff rallying supporters for council meeting
The Hoopa Valley Tribal Council chairman shut down the tribe's newspaper through a memo sent Friday afternoon, citing financial issues and disagreement over controversial articles.
Controversial. But excellent.
What is a newspaper for if not to tell the story, cover the issue? Controversial it may be, but the decision to publish Hunsucker's account of the killing was and is the right thing to do.
