Time's Person of the Year 2018 Are the Targeted Journalists

Time magazine’s Person of the Year 2018 are the journalists who have been targeted for doing their job: aka The Guardians and the War on Truth.

Four covers released by the magazine feature Philippines-based editor Maria Ressa, jailed Burmese journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, the staff of the Capital Gazette, who were the target of gun violence, and the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was brutally murdered just a few weeks ago.

“By featuring four distinct covers, we were able to amplify different voices from around the world,” Time creative director D.W. Pine said about picking the four subjects. “In the process of just doing their jobs, our cover subjects faced dangerous threats in what continues to be a global war on the truth.”

    This is probably THE BEST Person of the Year issue I have ever seen.

    Powerful stuff and a complete rebuke of all these tyrannical, genocidal and barbaric regimes.
