Is TIME magazine smoking crack again or what!?! I heard on FOX news that time has a short list of people 4 man of the year and Osama is a strong possibility to be on the cover!?! This is not the first time Time has commited to being this stupid. In 1938 it was Hitler, In 1979 it was Ayatollah Khomeini and Stalin made it both times in 1939 and 1942. TIME ahs gone too far. why don't they put "Men of the Year and commit the cover to the FDNY/EMS, PAPD and NYPD? Outrageaous! what a waste of paper.

I'd boycott it.

I think they should have one of an "Unknown man" for all of the firefighters and police and innocent people that died and include some personal stories of the afformentioned people.

well he is a big celebrity may not be for good reason but the entire world knows who he is now.

In high school a mate of mine and I had OBL listed in the employees section of our fake companies website as the head of terrorism and debt collection department.

Exactly, no one would buy TIME again. Just like how STAR lost a lot of revenue from what they published about Princess Diana.

What TIME ought to do for man of the year is put like 500 small photos of FDNY, NYPD, etc. on their cover. If they do that, they've already got a customer.  Smile

Is the reason that Hitler and so on made it not because Man of the Year is for the person who most influenced the world on the past year? Or something like that? You have to admit, not one effected the world this year as much as he did. It doesn't have to be in a good way, just like Hitler. What he did effected the whole world, as terrible as it was.

You people are misunderstanding the purpose of the Man Of The Year! It is not necessarily an honour. The purpose of the Man Of The Year issue is to remark on the people who have changed our lives, either positive or negative. I think it is quite suitable that Osama Bin Laden be on the cover, because who else has had more of an impact on the citizens of the world than Osama?

Remember, it's not an honour, especially for someone guilty of such a heinous crime.

The "Man of the Year" title goes to whoever manages to dominate the headlines for the majority of the year.

Last year it was George W. Bush because he dominated the majority of the headlines. If Gore had won he would have become "Man of Year" because he would have gotten more headlines, being president and all.

The good news is that they don't make dead people M.O.T.Y.

OBL will be dead by end of the year.

The Man/Woman of the year is the person Time feels has the biggest impact on world events for that year. You tell me someone who has had a larger impact? This isn't like People Magazine's "Sexiest Person In The World" issue-it isn't a popularity contest, and it shouldn't be. This is who influenced events the most, and he certianly can fit the bill.

Unfortunately, to make things PC, they'll probably pick President Bush instead, because too many readers think it's just another popularity test. I say he should be Man Of the Year, because the act he masterminded has completely changed the political, social, economic, physchological and military landscape of the United States, inded the world.

Exactly, All those who said the "Man Of The Year" award is for the one person who influenced the world and dominated the headlines greatly is correct. You don't necessarily have to have influenced the world by doing good to ebcome Man Of The Year.

Time has done stupider things with Man of the Year... like the year that Time/Warner bought Turner Broadcasting and Ted Turner was Man of the Year... makes you go hmmm.. Plus Stalin was man of the year in 44 I believe. Bush last year was a complete cop out if you ask me. But if anything I'd be willing to bet that Guiliani gets it... or maybe they'll do a joint MOTY with Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

It IS proven that he is behind the sep. 11 attacks, and that makes him "ASS of the year".

Or "coward of the year".
