David Carr dies…

Very sad to hear of the death of NYT media hack, David Carr:

If you’re gonna get a job that’s a little bit of a caper, that isn’t really a job, that under ideal circumstances you get to at least leave the building and leave your desktop, go out, find people more interesting than you, learn about something, come back and tell other people about it – that should be hard to get into. That should be hard to do. No wonder everybody’s lined up, trying to get into it. It beats working.

This was his last ‘performance‘ on camera.

    Good of you to note the death of this good man. He was a ‘must read” for many, especially anyone with interest in the media. It was shocking considering his relatively young age. He was insightful, perceptive, persistent in tracking down a story and a good writer as well. He will be much missed.
