From Irish Political Review: January 2007
The Non-Person Of The Year
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Time Magazine failed to report they held an online poll for "Person of the Year" and then ignored the results when they turned out not to their editors' liking.
Time's Person of the Year "is the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill, and embodied what was important about the year".
It turned out Hugo Chavez won their poll by a landslide at 35%. Second was Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at 21%. Then came Nancy Pelosi at 12%, The YouTube Guys 11%, George Bush 8%, Al Gore 8%, Condoleezza Rice 5% and Kim Jong Il 2%.
For some reason, the magazine's December 25 cover story omitted these results, so their readers never learned who won their honor and rightfully should have been named Time's Person of the Year. An oversight, likely, in the holiday rush, so it's only fitting the winner be announced here: Venezuelan President Hugo is Time Magazine's 2006 Person of the Year.
