Tom Mason is the General Counsel at Energy Transfer. Energy Transfer was responsible for the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline and Tom himself has been directly involved on the project. While the Dakota Access Pipeline triggered protests around the country, the media coverage didn’t fully cross-examine all sources of information and, consequently, skewed the narrative of the importance of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
