New York Times Journalist Drops Dead

NEW York Times's columnist David Carr drops dead just hours after interviewing Edward Snowden Posted on February 13, 2015 by Shepard Ambellas

NEW YORK (INTELLIHUB) — David Carr, 58, a columnist for the New York Times, fell down dead in his office Thursday just after interviewing NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in a Times Talks episode which was captured on video via Google Hangouts. Before Carr’s death he was said to have drawn out candid conversation with the whistleblower Snowden about the release of secret documents and also touched on the new film 'Citizenfour'.
During the interview Snowden gave information to Carr about a secret NSA encryption program. Moments later a clip of Citizenfour was also shown in which Snowden, who sitting in bed at a hotel room at the time, was being interviewed by a journalist as fire alarms kept going off, promptly alerting Snowden to unplug his room phone. Carr joined the New York Times in 2002 where his column 'Media Equation' was typically posted in the Monday business edition. Carr’s coworkers were shocked of his death and said that he was 'special', a 'gifted'journalist with lots of 'talent'. Carr also had a book published in 2008, which he worked on for three years, titled The Night of the Gun which talked about his previous struggles with cocaine and how he eventually became a good father to his daughters and a columnist for the Times. According to Tom McElroy with the AP, Carr was even teaching a 'Boston University class that explored the creative business models to support digital journalism' as he was quite the busy guy.  Carr’s death will now likely be a hot topic amongst the conspiracy community as Snowden was also responsible for leaking sensitive information about at least one 'flying saucer' or UFO incident.
