Summary
"Tear up what you know or think you know about politics. It's all changing. For thirty years the media dominated public affairs. Journalists, reporters, and pundits shaped the way we received information. They controlled what we knew about issues and politicians, and consequently influenced what and how we thought of them. Inside information and the threat of scandal was their most potent weapon. But now their weapon has lost its edge." "Today, insider information is available to anyone at the click of a mouse. No pundits to interpret it, no press secretaries to spin it. Information. Opinion. Raw data. It's all there on the Internet. And it's yours without anything between you and the source. Now that the public has found a new freedom to interpret things on its own, distrust of journalists rivals distrust for elected officials, bureaucrats, and lawyers. The Internet is replacing the traditional media as the driving force in American political life, and the result is nothing short of a cultural revolution." "As the print and broadcast media -- commonly referred to as the Fourth Estate -- falters and fails, a new social and political force is rising in power. The Fifth Estate, as Morris has dubbed it, is made up of the rapidly growing number of voters who use Internet technology. This army of younger citizens with easy access to information and a direct link to their representatives heralds a new dawning of democracy, putting political power back into the hands of the people.
