    Although I respect Mark Zuckerberg`s achievements and innovation and the ways that he has changed the world, he is hardly a big name of 2010. If anything he should be times man of the year for anytime in the last 4 or 5 years. Julian Assange is HUGE news now and whether you agree or disagree, he is definitely influential and how things are handled with him will certainly change the future of information exchange and government transparency.

    Yeah, you know... the Time magazine editors we vote into that public office position... Freedom of the press certainly isn`t in our constitution`s FIRST AMENDMENT! It is scary you can vote.

    @DudeAbides: Wouldn`t that highlight a problem in the relationship between the press and the government?

    I could understand not picking him as person of the year while he is being held on rape charges on the grounds of `political correctness`

    But this is absurd...

    I agree... Assange should have won it. He actually deserves to be called person of the year. Just about everyone except for patriotic morons approves or supports what wikileaks has done.

    So what do we do now? Well... for starters, this was clearly a ploy by Time to both avoid political ramifications and gain publicity at the same time... at the expense of its credibility of course. All we have to do is cross Time Magazine off the list of credible, unbiased media.

    Next time Time Magazine says something, you can dismiss it as if it was from Fox News or something...

    They didn`t even choose 10th place based on average rating, they chose 10th based on number of votes. Assange has the HIGHEST average rating out of anyone on there right now, as well as the MOST votes. He`s obviously #1 to a vast amount of people. I`m gonna find all the TIME magazines that have Zuckerberg on them and put a picture of Assange on them instead.

    The criteria for selecting the Person of the Year is defined as the person, who "for better or for worse, ...has done the most to influence the events of the year."

    It`s not a popular vote. Time picks the `winner`. Somebody did a poll to see what people thought and they posted the results.

    One has no bearing on the other.
