David Carr

Media Columnist and Reporter, The New York Times

David Carr is a media columnist and reporter for The New York Times. He was among the first bloggers at the newspaper as the Carpetbagger, a daily blog on all things Oscar with frequent video updates. He currently blogs at Decoder, contributes video to Timescast and is a little too active in feeding 360,000 followers on Twitter. Carr’s website for his memoir, nightofthegun.com, used a variety of multimedia elements to create an online extension of the printed version. He frequently writes about the intersection between old and new media, a gap that is closing with each passing day.
