To Whom It May Concern:
### BACKGROUND ###
In November 2016, the Morton County Sheriff's Department launched a video series on YouTube called "Know the Truth," in response to the Dakota Access pipeline demonstrations. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TH6G1ttpS6c)
### REQUEST ###
Pursuant to North Dakota Constitution, Article XI, Section 6, and the North Dakota Open Records Statute, N.D.C.C. § 44-04-18(1), I hereby request the following records:
All emails, presentations, legal opinions, memoranda, and briefs related to, about, or concerning the Morton County Sheriff's Department's "Know the Truth" video series.
In order to help to determine my status to assess fees, you should know that I am a journalist writing for Motherboard, VICE's technology and science site, and that this request is being made as part of news gathering.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. They will be used in the course of my reporting for Motherboard (www.motherboard.vice.com).
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request, and I ask that this be processed in the "media" fee category. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I would request your response within ten (10) business days.
