WaPo, NYT Name Julian Assange Person of the Year? Posted by Dana Loesch Dec 13th 2010
Andrea Mitchell named the tea party movement as her pick for person of the year:
Theyve changed the debate on deficit reduction. Theyve got, youve got Ron Paul now in charge of monetary policy from the House. They have changed politics for now in Washington.
David Ignatius of the Washington Post and Helene Cooper of the New York Times chose Assange:
Its painful to say this but I would say Julian Assange the head of WikiLeaks.

wonder what the AP (who is currently suing everyone posting their material on free sites) thinks of making Assange “Person of the Year”....
May the Iranian ICBM explode above their heads, not ours.
WaPo, NYT Name Julian Assange Prisoner of the Year?
Now that’s more like it.
If this administration had any stones, assange would be “corpse of the year.”
Proctology Today has already named him as their ***hole of the Year so why not.
Did they name Hitler as the man of the year in the early 1940s? If not they’re probably kicking themselves now.
I’m pretty sure Time did. That turned out great, didn’t it?
You’d think at this point they’d come up with a different category, perhaps scumbag loser guilty of espionage slime of the year.
If they want to name the most evil, fine. It just seems to me that the person of the year should be getting the notoriety for doing something positive.
Thanks for taking the time to find that for me. I appreciate it. I pinged MatMattico since they had thought Time did this.
I’d probably heard of it before, but after a while you forget some things.
Correction: MatMattico s/b MacMattico in the body of my reply
Time magazine named Hitler, “Person of the Year”, in 1938.
Isn’t that just precious?
TIME usually names whomever will be most offensive, disquieting, and hurtful to ordinary, thoughtful Americans. This makes them more “cool” with their pals in the JornOLism hive.
