The arrogance of Rupert Murdoch

A reader of Andrew Sullivan’s writes:

How did [Howard Stern] go from a must-hear personality who was constantly in the news for his antics or his outrageousness to a “whatever happened to?” has been? Simply, he was put behind a pay wall. Oprah has her own channel, but I’ve never heard it mentioned. If the King of All Media and a woman who has enough influence to swing a national election can’t get people to pay, why on earth does Murdoch think he can?

A good point for sure.
