So the Time Person of the Year is You, as in YouTube (and everywhere else that web content is created by individuals). This is the fourth time in five years that the magazine has failed to select just one influential individual (or even just two). The gimmicks that used to come about twice a decade are replacing the bread and butter of Time‘s most famous annual feature.
Managing editor Richard Stengel tells the AP that if they’d gone with an individual, it would have been Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but “it just felt to me a little off selecting him.” It feels to me a little off that someone who thinks like Stengel works at what’s supposed to be a newsmagazine.
