Two great sentences on newspapering and the late David Carr from A.O. Scott’s tribute  in The New York Times on 02-13-15: “David Carr: A journalist at the center of the sweet spot.”

“He understood better than anyone how hard the job can be, how lonely, how confusing, how riddled with the temptations of cynicism and compromise. And yet he could make it look so easy, and like the most fun you could ever hope to have.”
