literary juggernaut

Troy Senik said this about The Economist:

There probably isn’t another publication that I find myself lining up with as often as the literary juggernaut The Economist. Their views on current affairs are generally as erudite as they are pithy (not an easy feat to pull off).

And I am around mmm, 60-65% sure he wasn’t joking.

I mean, I like the Economist and all – a nice read in the bathtub now and then to keep my finger on the pulse of The Establishment, but .. ‘literary juggernaut’?
