    Link: Time Magazine Names Its Person Of The Year - Meh, it was a smart, safe choice, but I personally like it when they name an individual--not a collective group.

    And that person is "This Page Can`t Be Found", a popular internet celebrity that gets millions of hits per day, especially on days when IAB mods don;t pay attention to what is being posted.

    I`s prefer to have an individual named as well, but remember, here in America, even corporations are considered "people". smh

    Weird, it worked for me no problem.

    I`m actually surprised its not Steve Jobs

    I`m not. It`s person of the year, not decade or century, and all he did this year was release more products which he does every year. Dying doesn`t make you man of the year.

    They should be schmaltzy one year and and say "Person of The Year inside front cover" then you open it up and it`s a mirror.

    Eh, just because they weren`t putting their lives on the line, doesn`t mean that their cause wasn`t just. Besides, the article explaining Time`s choice talks about global public dissension, not that people put their lives on the line.

    Cover yourself. Your ignorance is showing.

    auburnjunky: actually, the occupy movement has gone globa, so there`s a valid conmparison. America isn`t the only country whose citizens voting power is being diminished by corporate and political corruption.

    Why is it upsetting? Cause they have to go through more crap than us? A protest is a protest, and I don`t think there is anything wrong with comparing a protest to another.

    Time Mag is not afraid to name contriversal people, the once named Hitler.

    it is not an honor or an award. it simply means the person/organization they name had a huge immpact on the world that year, good or bad.

    As I`m such a steadfast supporter of OWS and because I have been to Occupy San Diego...
    This makes me TIMEs Person of the Year.



    Thank you, thank you for this honor.
    I totally deserve it.

    Hopefully there`s a mention of the Tea-Party and their influence in the defecit "crisis", subsequenet downgrade of US credit rating, and making every American aware of how non-functional our government has become because of special-interest influence.

    So, thanks for that.

    @duffy: iirc it was the mid-late 80s. After Time went whole-hog against Reagan, and he swept the re-election, and then the Soviet Union disbanded, Time never recovered.
    They just kept up the same pro-left line, even though the rest of the USA had gotten tired of it. Oh sure they still sell copies, but relevance? Long gone.
