The Fourth Estate takes viewers into the newsroom of The New York Times through the first year of the Trump presidency, illuminating critical issues faced by journalists today. The documentary series examines how The New York Times journalists cover the President with accuracy and honesty in spite of his efforts to undermine the integrity of journalism with claims of 'fake news'.
Through extraordinary access and exclusive interviews, Oscar® nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?) chronicles the tenacious men and women in the trenches who are fighting for the freedom of the press.
