Abstract

There is a line in the feature film The Fifth Estate (2014) attributed to the Guardian journalist Nick Davies, that all societies periodically need people who seek the truth and are prepared to reveal this, whatever the cost. It underpinned a depiction of ‘democracy in crisis’. In this weltanshauung the only way to oblige government to work in the interest of the citizen is to have a new powerful force to hold authority to account principally because the Fourth Estate has slowly begun to fail in its coveted role.
