50 Years of the Fifth Estate and the Rise of Engaged Journalism
When a Mumford High School kid got fed up with lopsided coverage of the Vietnam War and social justice issues he founded his own newspaper, as the voice of dissent and resistance. Through five decades, the Fifth Estate has served as an outlet for countercultural ideas and statements. It led the way to new journalism with personal and passionate style. It also boosted the careers of numerous reporters and brought sassy, unconventional story telling to all the local news outlets.
