This Week in Alts: David Carr's time on the streets of Minneapolis, reporting a sexual assault in D.C., and moreStory | Feb 26, 2015 | 1:13 PMCity Pages, "Before The New York Times, David Carr Learned the Journalism Craft on Minneapolis Streets" David Carr, The New York Times media critic who died two weeks ago, got his start as a journalist in Minneapolis, working for the now-defunct alt-weekly Twin Cities Reader. City Pages talked to many of his friends and co-workers from his days in Minneapolis to get a portrait of the man before he went to work for Washington City Paper and then The Grey Lady. There are some frank descriptions of his drug problem—"There were times where all of us kind of lost track of him, had no idea where he was or what he was doing," reporter Brian Lambert says. ". . . we all thought, in the not so distant future, he would be found dead on some hellhole floor somewhere." It's an honest, but moving, portrait of a man who proved to be influential to many journalists around the country. There's also a song that Carr's friend Paul Metsa recorded about him.
