The Fifth Column is the world’s answer to the derivative nature of journalism today. As more and more news outlets are owned by fewer and fewer corporations, it becomes more important than ever for a truly independent news outlet to remain available to the public to provide in-depth coverage of the issues. Most of the world’s major outlets use four columns to distract and entertain you, while relegating stories of importance to a never seen fifth column. We are bringing those stories to the front page.
The Column’s journalists are encouraged to challenge the narratives, governments, and corporations that dominate the world’s mass media. From Ferguson to Fallujah, readers should prepare to immerse themselves in the stories of the world and see the events through new eyes and from viewpoints that are all too often forgotten.
We invite you to join our social media networks and stay informed as The Fifth Column enters your city.
