Person of the Year is an annual issue of United States (U.S.) newsmagazine Time that features a profile on the man, woman, couple, group, idea, place, or machine that "for better or for worse, ...has done the most to influence the events of the year."[1] A newsmagazine, sometimes called news magazine, is a usually weekly magazine featuring articles on current events. ... “TIME” redirects here. ...

History

The tradition of selecting a Man of the Year began in 1927, when Time editors contemplated what they could write about during a slow news week. Primarily, they sought to remedy an editorial embarrassment from earlier that year when the magazine did not put aviator Charles Lindbergh on its cover following his historic trans-Atlantic flight.[2] At the end of the year, they came up with the idea of a cover story about Lindbergh being the "Man of the Year." Year 1927 (MCMXXVII) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... Charles Augustus Lindbergh (4 February 1902 – 26 August 1974), known as Lucky Lindy and The Lone Eagle, was an American pilot famous for the first solo, non-stop flight across the Atlantic, from Roosevelt Field, Long Island to Paris in 1927 in the Spirit of St. ... // Transatlantic flight is any flight of an aircraft, whether fixed-wing aircraft, balloon or other device, which involves crossing the Atlantic Ocean — with a starting point in North America or South America and ending in Europe or Africa, or vice versa. ...


Since then, a person, group of people (either a team of select individuals or a demographic category), or in two special cases, an invention and the planet Earth, has been selected for a special issue at the end of every year. In 1999, the title was changed to Person of the Year in an effort to avoid sexism; however, the only women to win the renamed award so far were those in 2002 who were recognized as "The Whistleblowers" and, jointly with Bill Gates and Bono, Melinda Gates in 2005. Four women were awarded the title when it was still Man of the Year: Corazon Aquino in 1986, Queen Elizabeth II in 1952, Soong Mei-ling (Madame Chiang Kai-Shek) in 1937 and Wallis Simpson in 1936. Nevertheless, women would also be included in several groups, namely "Hungarian Freedom Fighter" in 1956, U.S. scientists in 1960, "Twenty-Five and Under" in 1966, "The Middle Americans" in 1969, "American Women" in 1974, "The American Soldier" in 2003, and "You" in 2006.

Controversy

The title is often regarded as being an honor, despite the magazine's frequent statements to the contrary.[4] Some speak of the position of "Person of the Year" as being a reward or prize, on the grounds that many admirable people have been given the title, and others such as Osama bin Laden have been ignored. Thus, journalists will frequently describe a new person of the year as having "joined the ranks" of past "winners" such as Martin Luther King. Yet people such as Adolf Hitler (in 1938) and Joseph Stalin (in 1939 and 1942) have also been granted the title. Osama bin Muhammad bin Awad bin Laden (Arabic: ‎; born March 10, 1957[1]), most often mentioned as Osama bin Laden or Usama bin Laden, is a Saudi Arabian militant Islamist and is widely believed to be one of the founders of the organization called al-Qaeda. ... “Martin Luther King” redirects here. ...

There was a massive public backlash in the United States after Time named Ayatollah Khomeini as Man of the Year in 1979.[5] Since then, Time has generally shied away from choosing anti-American figures. Time's Person of the Year 2001 — immediately following the September 11, 2001 attacks — was New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani, although the rules of selection ("the individual or group of individuals who have had the biggest effect on the year's news") made Osama bin Laden a more likely choice. The issue which declared Giuliani as Person of the Year included an article that mentioned Time's earlier decision to make Ayatollah Khomeini as Man of the Year in 1979 and the 1999 rejection of Hitler as "Person of the Century." The article seemed to imply that Osama bin Laden was a stronger candidate than Giuliani for Person of the Year and Hitler was a stronger candidate than Albert Einstein for Person of the Century, but they were not ultimately selected due to what the magazine described as their "negative" influence on history. There was also some controversy during the 1998 poll, when wrestler Mick Foley dominated the vote, receiving over 50% of the vote, before his name was removed. Ayatollah Khomeini founded the first modern Islamic republic Ayatollah Seyyed Ruhollah Khomeini (آیت‌الله روح‌الله خمینی in Persian) (May 17, 1900 – June 3, 1989) was an Iranian Shia cleric and the political...

Another criticised choice was the 2006 selection of "You", representing most if not all people for advancing the information age by using the internet (via blogs, YouTube and MySpace). The Daily Show's Jon Stewart referred to the selection as "a joke", and Slate labeled the selection as "just stupid." However, several other selections have contained large groups, if more discriminate. Stephen Colbert joked that when he received his copy of Time in the mail, he thought Time had picked him as the Man of the Year and sent him a personalized copy just for him.

Person of the Year - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1018 words)
Person of the Year is an annual issue of U.S. newsmagazine TIME that features a profile on the man, woman, couple, group, idea, place, or machine that "for better or worse, has most influenced events in the preceding year."
Time's Person of the Year 2001 — in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks — was New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
In recent years, the choices for Person of the Year have also been criticized for being too Americentric, which is a departure from the original tradition of recognizing foreign political leaders and thinkers.
Person of the year: Bush makes a ludicrous choice -DAWN - International; 25 December, 2004 (1287 words)
The absurdity of Time magazine naming George W. Bush "2004 Person of the Year" does not necessarily lie in the fact that the US president has pursued reactionary and repugnant policies.
Time notes somewhat defensively that its choices for Person of the Year are often controversial.
Editors are asked to choose the person or thing that had the greatest impact on the news, for good or ill - guidelines that leave them no choice but to select a newsworthy - not necessarily praiseworthy- cover subject.
