More Incest Between the Fourth and Fifth Estates

Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks & Meryl Streep Team for Pentagon Papers Drama 'The Post'

I regard "Hollywood," reffering to not the geographic location but the mass entertainment corporations collectively, as the "traditional" Fifth Estate, given their power over the American imagination. (Apparently there has been a push to name bloggers and such as the Fifth Estate, but I regard those currently disseminating alternative points of view to be part of the people, and not of the elites.) Given who owns what, are the Fourth and Fifth Estates really that distinct now?
