The honor of Time magazine's 2011 "Person of the Year" goes to "the protester" - from the demonstrators across the Arab world to the Occupy Wall Street movement that continues to make headlines. ...

In the U.S., three acute and overlapping money crises - tanked economy, systemic financial recklessness, gigantic public debt - along with ongoing revelations of double dealing by banks, new state laws making certain public-employee-union demands illegal and the refusal of Congress to consider even slightly higher taxes on the very highest incomes mobilized Occupy Wall Street and its millions of supporters,

Sorry, Tea Party didn't make the cut. Only Occupy Wall Street and Arab Spring protestors were apparently worthy of inclusion. ....

"Millions of supporters?" Wha? Who? WTF? There were barely 200 Occupy San Francisco protestors at a demonstration last weekend. The big protest planned by the OWS this week - to shut down every port between San Diego and Alaska - fizzled so badly that the press was forced to forget about reporting the original goal. Most ports saw little or no protest activity at all. Only one port was shut down - the Port of Oakland.

Just FYI - Time Magazine is owned by Time/Warner. Time Warner is left wing. There is some controversy over Time/Warner making statements that show it's out to destroy FOX news, and there are allegations of 'blood liable' from Time Warner against the country of Israel.

Other FYI - Time Warner vs News Corps - Freakonomics
