Brain Trust

There's an incomprehensible article in today's Los Angeles Times about Jon Stewart, wherein the writer tries to be funnier than Jon and his writers, with predictable results. It's pretty much a mess.

But the really irksome thing is the reference to the "brain trust" of the Daily Show. I've read that kind of sneering rhetoric before about TV comedy. You never read a sarcastic reference to the "brain trust of the Wall Street Journal" or the "brain trust of CNN."
