Hope this is the appropriate forum, as the man I was discussing this info with says he was serving the "Fourth Estate". He didn't imply it was a
secret society, however by what he was saying, I certainly thought so!
This started around 8 months ago, visiting a friend who was being treated as an inpatient for depression. During a visit, I got to know a very cool
elderly gentleman, was was labelled schizophrenic, over a few visits, we also built up a friendship, and although you may be thinking he was deluded -
what he had to tell me was 'backed up' with evidence.....from the states most read Newspaper.
Anyway, the story goes, that he wrote to the Newspapers' editors, and stated that they should arrange stories in the Paper according to the page they
were printed on. He said they started to do this eventually. The reason behind it - was for people 'in the know' to know what was 'really' being
printed depending on the page it was on.
I can't recall what the page numbers were other than the number '6' being used, something along the lines of the story being of a 'sickly'
So over a few weeks I started to read the newspaper and of course, the story on page '6' and '66' were very disturbing stories. I also recall
reading at the time the other pages - and they fit his description of what they were supposed to mean.
He also told me to only be interested in stories that had photos by certain photographers, associated with who wrote the story, was a good indication
that it was a 'relevant' story that in the long run would be in my 'interest'.
So now we were past this issue of stories on certain page numbers, and now were in the 'Sports Section' in the back of the paper. He also stated to
only read articles by a certain Journalist, and depending on what 'page' the article was on, depended on what the journalists intention of the
article was really about. IE, if it was a certain page - it would be the 'opposite' of what he was writing about. He also told me to check the
'Horse Race' fixtures, and only make bets (if i were to make bets) on race number '7'. He taught me how to read the history of the horses, and
also to get to know the reputation of horse trainers. I've forgotten all of this, but I recall doing some 'estimated' guess work on what horse
would win with the information he had given me. Most of it of course was depending on the report by the 'journalist' in the know.
ALL races I tried to pick the winner - ALL CAME LAST. The man told me that I either forgot 'this' and 'that' in the stories, and stated how the
'winner' was picked from the stories in the sports section.
I recall him showing me his winning tickets quite a lot of the time.
So anyway, eventually he started showing me how to give a 'proper' handshake. Also questioned me on why I would wear rings on certain fingers - he
stated what each finger was supposed to represent, and pointed out that due to the finger I had a silver ring on, that I had an interest in Men. I
assured him that was not the case, and I didn't know about the finger system, so I never wore it there again.
He then said to me "If someone does this to you when you give a handshake - make sure you do it back, he'll know your with the Fourth Estate".
I'm like WTF, when did I say yes to becoming a member! And what the hell was the Fourth Estate.
So I asked him if he was a Freemason, he said no. I then asked him what the Fourth Estate was, and he said "The Media".
Anyway, I seemed to divert a bit, but there's something to think about what newspapers 'may' be upto.
