The Fourth Estate (or fourth power) is a segment of society that wields an indirect but significant influence on society even though it is not a formally recognized part of the political system. The most commonly recognized part of the fourth estate is the news media, or press.
The term fourth estate derives from traditional European concept of the three estates of the realm: the clergy, the nobility, and the commoners. The equivalent term fourth power is somewhat uncommon in English but is used in many European languages (see: es:Cuarto poder and fr:Quatrième pouvoir, for example) referring to the separation of powers in government into a legislature, an executive, and a judiciary.
Thomas Carlyle attributed the origin of the term to Edmund Burke, who used it in a parliamentary debate in 1787 on the opening up of press reporting of the House of Commons of Great Britain. Earlier writers have applied the term to lawyers, to the British queens consort (acting as a free agent, independent of the king), and to the proletariat.
In current use, the term is applied to the press, with the earliest use in this sense described by Thomas Carlyle in his book On Heroes and Hero Worship: “Burke said there were Three Estates in Parliament; but, in the Reporters’ Gallery yonder, there sat a Fourth Estate more important far than they all.”

The New York Times (sometimes abbreviated as The NYT or The Times) is an American newspaper based in New York City with worldwide influence and readership. Founded in 1851, the paper has won 125 Pulitzer Prizes, more than any other newspaper. The New York Times is ranked 17th in the world by circulation and 2nd in the US.
The paper is owned by The New York Times Company, which is publicly traded but primarily controlled by the Ochs-Sulzberger family through a dual-class share structure. It has been owned by the family since 1896; A.G. Sulzberger, the paper’s publisher, and his father, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr., the company’s chairman, are the fourth and fifth generation of the family to helm the paper.
Nicknamed “The Gray Lady“, The New York Times has long been regarded within the industry as a national “newspaper of record“. The paper’s motto, “All the News That’s Fit to Print”, appears in the upper left-hand corner of the front page.
… Media analyst Brooke Gladstone of WNYC’s On the Media, writing for The New York Times, says that the decline in U.S. public trust of the mass media can be explained (1) by the rise of the polarized Internet-driven news; (2) by a decline in trust in U.S. institutions more generally; and (3) by the fact that “Americans say they want accuracy and impartiality, but the polls suggest that, actually, most of us are seeking affirmation.”
BOSTON — A Los Angeles man has pleaded not guilty to making a series of phone calls threatening to kill journalists at The Boston Globe.
Robert Chain made his first appearance in Boston’s federal court Monday.
Chain was arrested last month in California and indicted by a federal grand jury last week. Prosecutors say Chain was upset because the Globe editorial board led a nationwide campaign condemning President Donald Trump’s attacks on the press.
WBUR reports that Assistant U.S. Attorney George Varghese said prosecutors are investigating whether Chain also made threats to The New York Times and the NFL.
Chain‘s lawyer, former acting Massachusetts U.S. Attorney William Weinreb, declined to comment. Chain was freed from custody last month after agreeing to pay $50,000 if he violates any terms of his release.

Lady Grey X Jill Stuart SS18
Sep 11, 2017 Posted by: Jill Martinelli
Lady Grey collaborated with iconic designer Jill Stuart for her SS18 and 25th anniversary runway show at New York Fashion Week. Lady Grey created custom gold bustiers, headbands, and statement jewelry pieces for the event. A HUGE Congratulations on 25 years!
Via VOGUE: Notably, Stuart chose to collaborate with two young female designers for this collection, featuring jewelry by Lady Grey and belts by Zana Bayne. The bondage corsets and a delicate gold-chain body harness, shaped like a bustier, caught the eye (the latter when paired with one of those clean striped dresses). “I know their careers are going very far; they’re passionate about what they do,” Stuart said. She would know.

This website is also the beginning of a presidential campaign to elect Caroline Kennedy President of the United States. I prayed to Jehovah God to please, by means of His son Christ Jesus, please, arrange national events and world events in such a manner such that Caroline Kennedy is elected President of the United States. I know Jehovah God hears my prayer and will answer my prayer because that particular prayer of mine is one of my deepest desires and Jehovah God has promised me that he will satisfy all of my deepest desires.
