C’mon, FOR REAL?! TIME’s ‘2018 Person of the Year’ seems JUST a teensy weensy bit self-serving
TIME magazine has chosen their ‘2018 Person of the Year,’ not that we think any of our readers really care but you know, we need to cover these things for some reason. We guess because it’s news?

The Guardians to be more specific.
From NBC News:
With a record number of reporters behind bars around the planet — the Committee to Protect Journalists documented 262 cases in 2017— an avalanche of misinformation on social media and government officials from the United States to the Philippines dismissing critical, real reporting as “fake news,” Time is spotlighting a handful of journalists who have one thing in common: They were targeted for their work.
‘Real reporting dismissed as fake news …’
The media really aren’t doing themselves any favors these days.

Liberals giving liberals “awards” is always amusing.

Sorta like The Academy Awards.
Oh brother. Journalists call journalists Persons of the Year. And I have an annoucement too: I declare that I am the Person of the Year. Thank you for this honor, Andy.
