Watch David Carr’s Final Interview Hours Before His Death (VIDEO)

Only hours before he died after collapsing in the New York Times newsroom on Thursday, media columnist David Carr conducted an hour-long interview with National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden as well as journalists Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald.

At an NYT “Times Talks” event hosted by the New School in Manhattan, Carr spoke with Snowden and the others about Poitras’s film “Citizenfour,” touching on NSA surveillance, and the story of how Greenwald made contact with the now famous leaker.

“Glenn, I could congratulate you on your Pulitzer but I’m a fellow journalist and kind of jealous,” Carr opened, to laughs from the audience.

Watch the interview:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
