Time Magazine, verily thou hast outdone thyself


Truly, Time has descended into asinine self-parody:

Time Magazine's Person of the Year: You
NEW YORK (AP) - Congratulations! You are the Time magazine "Person of the Year."
The annual honor for 2006 went to each and every one of us, as Time cited the shift from institutions to individuals - citizens of the new digital democracy, as the magazine put it. The winners this year were anyone using or creating content on the World Wide Web.
"If you choose an individual, you have to justify how that person affected millions of people," said Richard Stengel, who took over as Time's managing editor earlier this year. "But if you choose millions of people, you don't have to justify it to anyone."
Thanks, editor dudes!

I guess this means we CL authors can now bill ourselves as Time's 2006 Men of the Year.

First, I would like to thank my mother, for putting up with me all of those years....

Time has become a muck factory of ignorance, bias, and yellow journalism. Its descent into the lowest journalistic swamps continues as it finds a new way to drive intelligent readers away.

This is such a cop-out. The creators of You Tube or the creators of Wikipedia would have made sense and would have made the same point.

At least this way they won't get any "I SHOODA WON!!!" complaints from the losers. Everybody wins!!! It's like nonscoring soccer leagues or "cooperative games" at the Karl Marx Montessori School.
