Time Person Of The Year


Time Person Of The Year
As it has for the last eight generations, Time publication chosen its person of the year Friday day. The difference goes to the person (or sometimes team or idea) the magazine’s authors believe had the biggest affect during the last year, for good or for ill. This year, they chose:“The Protester.”

“No one could have known that when a Tunisian fruit vendor set himself on fire in a public square, it would incite protests that would topple dictators and start a global wave of dissent,” the magazine writes. “In 2011, protesters didn’t just voice their complaints; they changed the world.”

Over the last season, “the protester” has verbal dissent against authoritarian management, first in Egypt, and then in The red sea, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Bahrain. The protester in Italy and in Portugal, which even had its own demonstrate dog, was battling with a staggering economic climate. The protester verbal frustration over perhaps rigged elections, in nations around the world as different as Italy and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In the U.S., the Use up Walls Road protester started indicating first in New You are able to, and then in Oregon, Chicago, illinois, and places as little as Trenton, N.J.

In this year’s report, Time pieced together what all these revolutions have in common, why they protest, and what the legacy of the year’s protests will be. The magazine profiles a citizen journalist who started the live stream for Occupy Wall Street from Zuccotti Park, and a protester in Mexico who has had enough of the drug violence in that country.

“The protester” this year beat out Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, newly royal Kate Middleton, Navy Adm. William McRaven, and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).

“There was a lot of consensus among our people,” Time Managing Editor Richard Stengel told the “Today” show about the choice of the protester. “It felt right.”

“Many are outraged by this choice and will hold a demo,” joked Andrew Stroehlein, of the International Crisis Group, of the choice.

At first glance, the social media universe greeted the choice with few complaints — unlike with last year’s contentious decision. So many people were upset when Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg took the title over WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, Time editor spoke out in defense of the cover.

There are some hints of dissent. “Time's ‘Person of the Year’ is the person they did not put on their U.S. edition covers,” The Post’s Anup Kaphle wrote on Twitter.

In a viral screengrab, Internet users complained about the Dec. 5 cover story selection. Time Magazine put a protester with the headline “Revolution Redux on the cover of its Europe, Asia and South Pacific editions, but opted for the headline “Why Anxiety is Good For You” on the cover of its U.S. edition.
