David Carr on Tribune
futureofcapitalism.com

David Carr has a long article in the New York Times attributing the bankruptcy of the Tribune company to the takeover of an owner "with virtually no experience in the newspaper business."

From the article:

"They threw out what Tribune had stood for, quality journalism and a real brand integrity, and in just a year, pushed it down into mud and bankruptcy," said Ken Doctor, a newspaper analyst with Outsell Inc., a consulting firm.

The Anachronistic David Carr
futureofcapitalism.com

New York Times reporter David Carr, columnizing about Rupert Murdoch and News Corp.'s iPad newspaper project The Daily: "The Daily will have a separate opinion section, which will seem wildly anachronistic to readers who have grown up reading news and point-of-view analysis in the same piece of digital journalism."

Does Mr. Carr also find the separate opinion section in the print, Web, and iPad versions of the New York Times anachronistic? Or is it only anachronistic when Mr. Murdoch does it? If Mr. Murdoch's Wall Street Journal, New York Post, and Fox News are any indication, it's not as if the opinion will be a news-free zone, either.

Carr Misses the Beginning
futureofcapitalism.com

David Carr has a column in the New York Times claiming that the furor over airport pat-downs "began with a Drudge Report link to a video on Nov. 13 of an intrusive pat-down, and then leapt to social media and the rest of the Web." Mr. Carr is wrong; it began October 29 with a post by Jeffrey Goldberg at the Web site of the Atlantic.

Mr. Carr claims: "At a time of incredibly fractionalized [Does he mean factionalized?] politics, the pat-down was a single issue we could all rally around. For liberals, it was Big Brother grabbing liberties (with both hands) and conservatives once again felt the intrusive touch of Big Government in their pocket." But this gets the politics of the issue wrong; as the Cato Institute's David Boaz writes in a post headlined Conservatives, Liberals, and the TSA:

Carr's Probably
smartertimes.com

David Carr has a column in the Times about Carl Icahn and Apple:

Never mind that Mr. Icahn would probably not know an iPhone from a Galaxy S4. ...Apple is a deliberate, careful company and will not suddenly adjust its managing strategy to accommodate someone's need for lucrative short-term returns.

Mr. Cook is an unfailingly polite person who probably saw no harm in telling Mr. Icahn as much face-to-face.

What's with the swipe at Mr. Icahn's knowledge of mobile phones? Mr. Carr probably didn't bother to call Mr. Icahn or his office to report out the level of his technical knowledge, so he uses the word "probably" to veil the fact that he doesn't have a precise view of Mr. Icahn's technical knowledge or an on-the-record source that he can attribute the information to.
