The Fifth Estate
The influence of what is known as The Fifth Estate, which is viewpoints and journalism generated outside of the mainstream press, has risen thanks to the emergence of blogs and social media. How effective are these alternate sources in raising public consciousness, changing government policy, and stirring grassroots movements? Are they held to the same standards as mainstream journalism? In this age of fake news, WikiLeaks, and the president's so-called war on the press, readers will find the varied and provocative viewpoints that are explained in this book incredibly relevant and enlightening.
