Minnesota’s journalism community mourns the loss of media columnist David Carr. Before his brilliant career at The New York Times, the Minnesota native’s talent was already evident in his helming of the Twin Cities Reader. Even after his career took him to new heights, he never hesitated at the chance to support journalism back in his native state. “We perform miracles on a daily basis,” Carr energetically told a crowd of 100 Minnesota journalists at Minnesota SPJ’s annual Page One Awards banquet in 2007. We will miss his great wit, his insights into modern media, and his tireless advocacy of journalism.
