Watch David Carr’s Interview with the “Citizenfour” Filmmakers Hours Before His Death
Dave Carr, a friend and a colleague, died tonight at age 58. He was found in the New York Times newsroom around 9pm, a couple of hours after he hosted a TimesTalk with the “Citizen Four” filmmakers. I don’t think I’d seen Dave since December, and he does not look well in this video. It’s just so sad and tragic that this happened tonight. He was a great writer and reporter, and, like Bob Simon, the real deal. He was a good pal who had a great, wry sense of humor. His Times video pieces when he covered the Oscar were exceptional and memorable. I will really miss him, just like all his extended circle of friends. Condolences to his family.
