About Fifth Estate Collective

Fifth Estate (FE) is a U.S. periodical, based in Detroit, Michigan, begun in 1965, and presently with staff members across North America who connect via the Internet.

The title implies that the periodical is an alternative to the fourth estate (traditional print journalism).
