"Man-Eater: The Life and Legend of an American Cannibal" Harold Schechter delivers the definitive story of a legendary crime—a gripping tale of unspeakable suffering, the desperate struggle for survival, and the fight to uncover the truth. Learn more | See related books
Schechter's self-dissection is as keen and clear as his ongoing analysis of our broken media system, available daily at his long-running News Dissector blog and now, in collected form, in Blogathon: Reflections and Revelations from the News Dissector, a compilation of critical media counterpoints that Schechter has been busy blogging and slogging through every day for eleven years -- every day, in fact, since that fateful one of 9/11, as the World Trade Center towers came tumbling down.
Since then, Schechter has offered a consistent counter-narrative to the daily news -- "posts, rants and raves" -- to the tune of some 3000 words a day. While others may be reading their morning paper, Schechter is busy writing, editing and aggregating his own, slicing below the surface of current events to "pick away at the sinews of what passes for journalism."
