    “Person of the Year” is high praise indeed. TIME has given the honor to the teenage climate activist, Greta Thunberg, for beginning “a global movement by skipping school.” Perhaps more gallingly, TIME named “the public servants” as their “guardians of the year.” In particular, Marie Yovanovitch, Bill Taylor, Fiona Hill, and Alex Vindman—four of the bureaucrats who testified against President Trump in the impeachment hearings—as individuals who had the courage to “follow the law.” While these four might have “followed the law” by testifying under subpoena, the broad-based effort to impeach President Trump based on a phone call with Ukrainian...

In 2017, it was "The Silence Breakers," the group of people who came forward to report sexual misconduct. Past Persons of the Year include Adolf Hitler, Ayatollah Khomeini and Joseph Stalin.

    For a man facing daily attacks for his activism and liberal vision of the world, George Soros was in a curiously buoyant mood on a sunswept afternoon in Marrakesh. He had just visited South Africa, home to his first philanthropic foray in the late 1970s, when he funded black students under apartheid. This time he learnt that Soros-backed investigative media and civil society groups had helped thwart an allegedly corrupt nuclear power plant contract with Russia. “It was a tremendous boost to reinforce my belief that we are doing something right,” says Mr Soros. “We haven’t stopped having a beneficial...

    It’s been a grim year for those seeking to pursue and preserve the truth. Journalists around the world have been targeted and assaulted for their work. Some have paid with their freedom; others have paid with their lives. Even the president of the United States — a country that has prided itself on having freedom of the press since its founding — has repeatedly attacked the media as “the enemy of the people.” Other world leaders have echoed this aggressive stance against the media, cracking down on reporters who have tried to hold them accountable. We are living through nothing...

    IME Magazine named “The Silence Breakers” of the #MeToo movement — the social media-born status symbol for sexual assault and harassment survivors — as its 2017 Person of the Year, referencing President Donald Trump in its cover story more than a dozen times. The #MeToo movement made waves in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex misconduct scandal as women spoke out in protest against sexual harassment in Hollywood, the media, and beyond. The TIME cover story honoring the social media-driven moniker name-drops President Trump nine times and references him on several other occasions despite the fact that the allegations...

President Donald Trump was runner-up in the prestigious ranking, ahead of his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping. Time designated as "silence breakers" the individuals, mostly women, who came forward this year to publicly expose patterns of sexual harassment, assault and even rape by some of society's most powerful public figures.

    We will remember 2017 as much for what athletes strove to achieve off the field as for what they achieved on it. And that was no small bar to clear. New champions were crowned, notably the Houston Astros, who ended the second-longest World Series drought by winning the first in the franchise’s history, while old champions (the Patriots, the Warriors, the Lynx, the Penguins) solidified their places in the pantheon.Even in a year of sublime individual performances—Brady and KD, Deshaun and Fed, all of them considered for this award—athletes spoke loudest in their actions and words off the field. .This...

    Time Magazine has released a list of finalists for their "person of the year:" Kim Jong Un, Xi Jinping, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, Jeff Bezos, Colin Kaepernick, The Dreamers, Robert Mueller, Patty Jenkins and Donald Trump. Why it matters: President Trump was named Person of the Year by the magazine last year, and tweeted a couple weeks ago that he he had told Time "no thanks" when they informed him he would "probably" receive the title again. Time denied the story. Trump has often boasted about being on the cover of Time magazine, and the Washington Post discovered that...

    Some have already spotted a winner, however.

For which The American Spectator applauds this particular president of the United States — a man of decided courage, conviction — and consequence” writes contributing editor Jeffrey Lord in explaining the publication’s rationale.

    The words were spoken by Edward Stuyvesant Bragg, a one-time Union general in the Civil War turned-Congressman from Wisconsin. At the 1884 Democratic National Convention, Bragg, then a congressional candidate, was selected to second the nomination of New York Governor Grover Cleveland for president. Cleveland had made his reputation as governor by being a staunch opponent of New York City’s corrupt Tammany Hall political machine, fearlessly taking on members of his own party as he championed reform of state government. Thus it was that Bragg stepped to the podium of the party’s National Convention and uttered the phrase that would...

    Since 1927, TIME Magazine has chosen a “Person of the Year,” defined as a person (or people) who has had the most influence over the news in the last 12 months. In 2016, the Person of the Year was Donald J. Trump, who upended the political world after unexpectedly defeating his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton to become the President of the United States. The year before, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was named Person of the Year after she led Europe through a series of political and economic crises. Many of 2017’s biggest headlines were a reflection of the year that...
