Time Magazine's Desire For Total Irrelevancy Closer To Fruition With 2011's 'Person of the Year'

Oh, if only that were true.

Instead, Time went the moral equivalence route with this nonsense:

Time’s rationale:


The magazine cited dissent across the Middle East that has spread to Europe and the United States, and says these protesters are reshaping global politics.

[…]

Time said it is recognizing protesters because they are “redefining people power” around the world.

Ed Driscoll, who created the terrific mock up at the top of the page, sums the choice up perfectly:

AP claims, “Time said it is recognizing protesters because they are ‘redefining people power’ around the world.”

Of course, “people power” isn’t the same as freedom, individuality, or advancing civilization, as we’ve seen in both the Middle East and OWS.

Not to mention the other similarity between the Arab Spring and OWS.

In the eyes of our MSM Overlords, all protesters are apparently created equal.
