Brian Williams’ Brooklyn Shtick: Now for Cabs

Back in December, Brian Williams poked fun at the New York Times‘ coverage of Brooklyn, saying on “Morning Joe” that the media story of 2010 was the paper’s “discovery” of the borough. Now, via Huffington Post, we learn that Williams has brought an abbreviated version of the routine to taxi TVs. The spot isn’t about the paper of record’s coverage this time around but a riff on the “people watching” Brooklyn affords via its “hipsters.” Gotta wonder what a tourist would make of this!
