David Carr Will Enjoy the iPad Whether Nerds and New York Like It or Not

Daily Intel got David Carr to talk about his noticeable enjoyment of the iPad.

Mr. Carr admits he has “fanboy tendencies” and says he “really [likes] discovery.”

As for the charge that his enthusiasm could be mistaken for an Apple ad, he says perhaps that’s fair, but he’s a little defiant.

Well, that’s up to you to judge. But why would I shill for them? What do I care about them? We’re supposed to have a reflex of built-in skepticism, and, “It’s not all that!” And that’s the cool way to be. I don’t really care about being cool. That doesn’t matter to me. I have no reason to curry favor with them. They’re not really my beat. I believe that this is a transformative device on my beat, and if my words make you or others uncomfortable, I really don’t care.
