Michael Wolff: The New York Times’ David Carr is a ‘nitwit’ because of his defense of newspapers
Vanity Fair media columnist Michael Wolff doesn’t care much for New York Times media columnist David Carr. “I couldn’t say if it has to do with his schooling or his own intellectual limitations, but the guy is really quite a nitwit,” Wolff wrote. (Wolff and Carr worked together at New York magazine.) What sparked this screed? Carr’s recent column explaining why newspapers are so important, a column that Wolff thinks is utter nonsense.
