Time magazine chickens out.

"Time magazine has named "You" as "Person of the Year," in recognition of the growth and influence of user-generated content on the internet." (BBC)


This is a cop out. It reminds me of those feel-good politically correct sports leagues for kids where there are no losers, because everybody "wins." Were there really no clear candidates this year?

They said the frontrunner was Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which explains their loathness. They probably feared they'd be lambasted as unpatriotic or some similar humbug.
