David Carr – Beloved by All

by Rachel Baker on February 13, 2015

I have spent last night and this morning reading from the NYT’s archives of David Carr’s work. I have never read David Carr, and now that I have, I feel I have missed out on a great deal of some of the best writing in journalism. I decided to do this reading because of the incredibly outpouring on Twitter re: his death. I follow a lot of journalists and media outlets; and even the accounts I didn’t expect tweeted a tribute. It turns out this man was beloved by all…even the ones he wrote negatively about.

I am saddened that I have just now found his work, but over the next few weeks, I will be reading the articles he wrote at the NYT.

If you are interested, I invite you to click the link below and spend the weekend reading what David Carr had to say that made so many love him.
