About us

Welcome to The Fifth Column

The name implies a spirit of subversion.

Yes… but not in the predictable, ultimately tiresome, sense of arguing with everything and everybody.

Our business is the stories, issues, controversies in the public consciousness. Which deserve further, sometimes deeper, investigation. Truth, after all, is hard to find – it’s usually subjective, and always complex.

Provocative.  Irreverent.  Unpredictable.
