And then he springs it: the Murdoch Moment.
Writing of Luce’s death in 1967, Keller observes, “that consensus had been torn asunder, and today there is no vehicle, no voice with the coherent power of Luce’s magazines in their heyday. The last of his breed of media tycoon is a 79-year-old Australian billionaire whose impact has been more corrosive than cohesive.”
Translation: Murdoch is no Luce.
