Welcome to The Fifth Estate

Journalism is printing what somebody else does not want printed – everything else is public relations

This quote is often attributed to George Orwell.

Whether he wrote it or not isn’t really that important.

What is important, is the quote itself.

Today’s media is nothing more than a corporate PR machine for government and big business.

They have failed in their duty as the Fourth Estate.

This means that it is up to those of us with blogs, vlogs, etc to step up to the plate.

We are the Fifth Estate.

My aim with this blog is to go behind the headlines and write what they don’t want, or won’t write about.
