CJF J-Talk features David Carr of The New York Times
TORONTO, Aug. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - The Canadian Journalism Foundation kicks off this season of J-Talks with "Yes, Genius, the Sky is Falling. So Now What?" featuring David Carr, business columnist and culture reporter for The New York Times, in conversation with Michael Enright, host of CBC Radio One's The Sunday Edition. The event takes place Thursday, September 13, 7:30 p.m. at the TMX Broadcast Centre Gallery, Toronto.
It's clear that between evaporating business models and dispersing audiences that legacy media is on the run. Would it be better to blow it all up and start over or can the dinosaurs dance to a new soundtrack? Carr examines the value of traditional media in a cluttered, confusing age, in conversation with Enright.
"David Carr is the watchdog's watchdog," says Enright. "He forces us to think about what we do and why—and how we could be better. His is a unique voice."
Carr's "Media Equation" column in The New York Times explores the implications of the changing media landscape. He also writes about film, television, music and theater for the culture pages. He is a regular contributor to the Media Decoder blog and does a weekly video series, The Sweet Spot, with Times chief film critic A. O. Scott about the intersection of culture and business. Carr is the author of "The Night of the Gun," a New York Times bestseller that applied the tools of reporting to the genre of memoir.
