“Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.”
By the time a photographer spotted these words on a shirt at a campaign rally for Donald Trump in November 2016, it had long been clear that a growing number of Americans had not-so-subtle reservations about journalists. In an age that some demonize the media as an “enemy of the people,” it’s time for a heart-to-heart about what journalism is, and what it could be.
And while we break down the news business, let’s also bake some bread.
In Kneading Journalism, award-winning international journalist Tony Ganzer provides an insider’s view of the Fourth Estate through compelling personal narratives and keen insights. Essays transport the reader from a bread riot before the French Revolution, to the inside of Germany’s public media and bread industries, to the streets of post-revolutionary Cairo, all while exploring the who, what, and why of journalism.
Kneading Journalism provides readers bite-sized thoughts on journalism and society, and basic bread recipes for any level of baker.
Before we can break bread, we need to bake bread.
