TIME Magazine's "Persons of the Year" - Deserving or Disturbing?
TIME Magazine now on newsstands highlights the "Person of the Year" and six significant runners-up. What it reveals raises lots of legitimate questions.
Before we review the list, consider this is not a popularity test but rather a tribute to people making the greatest impact today. Recognition is bestowed by the editors on the persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or ill, and embodied what was important about the year.
If you thought character and noble achievements were critical components, think again. There are no Mother Theresa-like figures gracing the pages.
