David Carr on Reporting & the Story of a Lifetime (His!)

I’m not sure whether I’ll find the time to read all of David Carr’s much acclaimed memoir “The Night of the Gun,” just out in paperback, but I did read the lengthy excerpt from it in the New York Times Magazine last summer and found it riveting. A harrowing story – the author’s own – masterfully told. This is an interesting Ad Age interview with Carr about the nature of reporting, the pursuit of truth and what he learned from his book project.
