The editors of Time magazine will officially name the magazine's "Person of the Year" on December 19 on the Today show. However, before the magazine's pick is announced, Time ran a poll among its readers and found that the majority (over 5 million voters) chose Kim Jong Un as "Person of the Year". While the readers' choice is not an official magazine's pick, it does speak volumes when they pick a dictator who did not make a public appearance till 2010, and hardly has any accomplishments under his belt except "inheriting" the country from his father, and trying hard to rule like him. The poll was conducted online, so anyone in the world with an internet access could cast their vote. One thing is for sure - over 5 million of Time readers think that "dictators are cool". Perhaps it's "time" for the magazine to rethink why their content attracts such audience.
Choose your own (worthy or unworthy) person and Photoshop him/her on the TIME magazine cover as 2012 Person of the Year. Real or fictional celebrities (from movies, cartoons, paintings) are all welcome.
KenSurman I think the 'Camp Star Wars Stormtrooper' should be Time Magazine's person of the year because he's kinda cute & cuddly, only thinks good things and does a lot of great work behind the scenes to get the world back on its feet. Aka known as something to do with a Star Wars Stormtrooper helmet; turn it into a flying camp wrestler who thrusts floursescent nipples into your face. 574 days ago
