By selling magazines that talk about it.

This has got to be in the Book of Revelations or something, right? The Whore of Babylon, or the Unclean Spawn of Billy Ray?

Most inclined to bother voting in almost any online poll: the teenyboppers. They are helping to fuel the Miley train wreck.

I'm reading this on an old-gen IPod browser, so the animation is extra-slow.

With enough money, you can buy your way to the top of that list.

"In 2007, Ketchum [a huge P.R. firm] successfully lobbied Time magazine to name Putin its "Person of the Year," according to U.S. Justice Department lobbying disclosure filings that show repeated meetings between Ketchum representatives and Time staffers."

Agreed because Snowden did nothing that changed how we and the rest of the world looks at US spying.  On the other hand everyone's lives have been enriched by Cyrus.

I'm not sure but I think it's got something to do with branding someone with a past as a child actor as a sex symbol, instead, or at least as a grown up. So far the branding seems to have leveled out at 'weirdo', and I think most people are just clicking the articles in the hope of seeing some new about a death by overdose.

Whatever his reason, even if it was for attention, this was a man who stepped out and essentially told us all "No, we actually haven't always been at war with Eastasia". He exposed the lie. That's damn heroic, even if it was for selfish reasons.

Does Time deliberately pull this sh*t every year just to piss people off? If it weren't for Miley, would they have made Ariel Castro their MoTY instead?

Edward farking Snowden should ALSO not be the person of the year. That's not nearly as ridiculous as Cyrus, but still a dumbass idea.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Person_of_the_Year

Person of the Year (formerly Man of the Year) is an annual issue of the United States newsmagazine Time that features and profiles a person, group, idea or object that "for better or for worse, ...has done the most to influence the events of the year.

I dunno, I guess there really is no person of the year.

I guess it depends on how loosely you interpret "influence" and "events." If your metric is media coverage, that's something I guess.

Hitler was Time man of the year once.

It was always supposed to be about influence on the world stage. Several years back time was going to put some other not so nice person, I forgot who, but there was a big outrage over it.

It was politically correct ignorance that made it into a popularity contest.

I doubt Time will go with Miley Cyrus, but it would be a good commentary on just how pathetic things have gotten.
