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

February 13, 2015 9:17 a.m.

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.
