Media columnist David Carr, who wrote the Media Equation column for The New York Times and penned a memoir about his fight with drug addiction, collapsed at his office and died. He was 58.

Just hours before his death Thursday, he had moderated a "Times Talks" conversation with Edward Snowden, director Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald about the documentary "Citizenfour," which chronicles Snowden's leak of National Security Agency documents. Carr, engaged as always, drew them out with pointed questions and wry observations to speak candidly about the film.

  3. What do you mean? I still haven't seen anything about cause of death - so obviously he hadn't been ill, just like Breitbart.

    Also read more about the livery driver who crashed the car with Bob Simon dying - just dang, you can't make this stuff up any more. So, why lie when the truth is so unbelievable?
