The Muscogee (Creek) Nation tribal council continues to face criticism from free press advocates. The council revoked a 2015 law protecting the tribally-owned Mvskoke Media from editorial control by tribal leaders. Mvskoke Media includes a newspaper and radio and TV broadcasts. The Native American Journalists Association condemns the law calling it “government censorship.” In a video of the council meeting, Council Member James Jennings said he thought “the newspaper itself could have more positive issues on the Nation and not so much negative issues.” We’ll look at what the Muscogee action means and discuss the press freedoms at other tribally-owned media outlets.
