David Carr Explains How He Broke Into Media

From a 2012 interview with Mediabistro.

As the media world mourns David Carr of The New York Times, we’d like to call your attention back to this 2012 interview in which he discussed his “first big break” with our team.

It’s a great account of Carr channeling his outrage over police misconduct into what turned out to be the beginning of a great career in media — and a portrait of 1970s Minneapolis as “the whitest place on Earth.”

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

More on Carr to come.
