It is often said that media acts as the fourth pillar of democracy in that it informs and educates citizens so that they are critically aware of events taking place around them. A free and open press can give citizens the transparency they need to help preserve democracy and constitutional rights. How are new modern investigative journalism formats such as the podcasts Serial and Undisclosed, or the television series Making of a Murderer, impacting democracy and the criminal justice system today?
