The title of The Fifth Estate suggests Wikileaks, and its controversial founder Julian Assange, have reshaped the hierarchy of global power, creating a new tier above news media (which are sometimes known as ‘the fourth estate’). Since its inception, Wikileaks has offered people a forum to place classified information into the public realm. Assange claims he is providing an important service in enabling a free, open flow of information, but he has become the enemy of governments around the world. The Fifth Estate asks whether Assange is a Robin Hood of the web or an egocentric mischief-maker.
