A Brooklyn daily? Yes, but...

Atlantic Yards Report explains his exclusion of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle when saying that Brooklyn has no dailies:

A reader took me to task for my musing yesterday about the failures to cover the Atlantic Yards eminent domain hearing: "Imagine Brooklyn as a separate city with its own daily newspaper. The Atlantic Yards case would've been front and center."
The Eagle did cover the court hearing Wednesday, with a 427-word article. A more substantial Brooklyn daily, I'd imagine, would've given it more space. The New York Sun, by contrast, managed 669 words. I thought it was worth a lot more than that.
