In Morning Miracle, Dave Kindred takes an in-depth look at the 21st-century newspaper by spending time in the inner sanctum of one of the country's most venerable: The Washington Post. With unprecedented access to every nook and cranny of the paper, Kindred provides a comprehensive, entertaining, no-holds-barred look at what it takes to turn out a world-class paper day in and day out. He conveys the sense of the excitement and drama, the personalities and conflicts that shape copy every day. He delves into the business side of a great newspaper struggling to meet Wall Street's demands for ever-increasing profits. And focuses on the role and importance of journalism in American democracy.

What the Critics Say

"[Kindred] brings passion, insight, empathy, and a critical eye—as well as great access to Post reporters and management, including Ben Bradlee, Bob Woodward, David Broder, and Dana Priest—to this completely engrossing look at the decline of a great newspaper.... Sad and delightful at the same time." (Booklist)

"A fine piece of writing and reporting." (The Atlantic)

    Story
    "Lacks in Entertainment"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I think I was expecting something more than just the gradual death of the newspaper idustry. There were some interesting bits, but more a history lrsson than entertainment.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Over the years, there had to be some interesting stories and witty happenings. I would have highlighted a few more of these...


    What aspect of Dale Connelly’s performance would you have changed?

    It was fine.


    Do you think Morning Miracle needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Just the newspaper industry obituary
