Exclusive interview with journalist John Carroll

Following his speech Monday evening, journalist John Carroll spoke with me about his professional career, which spans more than forty years. The former Los Angeles Times editor discussed the future of print media and the Internet, ethics and conflicts of interest as well as advice for aspiring journalists. Carroll also reflected on a personal conflict concerning his coverage of the 1969 death of Mary Jo Kopechne in a car accident with Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Look out for full coverage of Monday's speech in tomorrow's paper.
