Forthright Voice on Media Dies

The New York Times lost one of its most distinctive voices last night. David Carr, the media columnist for the paper, died after collapsing in the newsroom. Carr was known for his unpretentious but sophisticated style, his journey to prominence the more impressive in light of the addictions from which he suffered in the 1980s. You can read his obituary in The New York Times, or check out the DVD Page One: Inside The New York Times from the library and see his take on how the Internet is redefining the news business. A sad loss for the news world.
