TIME magazine revealed the 2011 choice for its iconic Person of the Year cover live on TODAY Wednesday. The Protester is this yearâ€™s choice, managing editor Rick Stengel told Matt Lauer and Ann Curry. As it has for the past 84 years, the weekly newsmagazine selected the person (or sometimes group, or thing) that its editors deemed had the single greatest impact during the past year, for better or for worse.
Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King Jr., Ghandi, and now ‘The Protester’. What… the…. f? Has ‘The Protester’ “catalyzed global revolution”? Really? I know everyone and their mother has been protesting, but really?Â If you look into it, Time Magazine had the shortest, crappiest list of people in the running for this award. Kate Middleton, yeah she’s pretty hot. What a bad year for ‘Persons’. We really need to step it up in 2012 or we’ll be looking at Lindsay Lohan on the cover of this issue.
