“Mailer Clarifies His ‘Fifth Estate.’” Article by unidentified writer. New York Times, 7 February, 45. On 6 February, the day after he had proposed “The Fifth Estate,” Mailer called a news conference to say that he regretted calling his proposed organization “a people’s police.” He went on to compare “The Fifth Estate” with the American Civil Liberties Union, Common Cause and Nader’s Raiders. He said it would be a “kind of ombudsman” that would perform “objective, scholarly work,” and he would like to have “an umbilical relationship” to it. See 73.2, 73.3, 73.673.8, 73.10, 73.11, 73.18.
