NBC's Brian Williams won the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis at the Media Research Center's 30th Anniversary Gala last night in Washington, D.C.

The audience awarded Williams with the prize for comments he made on MSNBC on Nov. 26, 2016, the night that Cuba's Communist dictator, Fidel Castro, died.

Speaking of that nation impoverished by socialism, Williams said that people there would rather have "donkey carts" than cars and trucks as a mode of transportation.

"It's still one of those nations where you see donkey carts alongside cars, truck and buses in downtown Havana, because that's exactly what they'd rather have for transporation," Williams said.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R.-N.C.) accepted the award, saying: "Brian Williams would have been here but he is flying in a helicopter somewhere over Iraq."
