#2 Naturally, big money being poured into making her a Joan of Arc type figurehead/mascot for the more violent and aggressive Antifa 2:Extinction Revolution.

#3 *Barf* Expected from them, but *barf*. But then, who reads Time™ magazine in the Internet Age?

#4 Yet another chapter in the decline / fall / utter cliwnifucation of the US media.

Since it's inception TIME's Man Person of the Year was selected according to a clear, simple, universally-understood criterion: the individual who for better or worse dominated the news cycle and thus, in media-world and with the perspective of the last twelve months, most significantly influenced the world.

By this simple criterion TIME chose and defended its choice of world-historical personages such as Adolf Hitler and the Ayatollah Khomeini.

The blindingly obvious choice - if TIME had any integrity left - for 2019 would be Donald J. Trump.

A Eurocentric choice could arguably be Boris Johnson or even Erdogan.

But not the spoiled brat who not only has had no influence on anything whatsoever but has not even influenced more than a couple of media cycles out of hundreds.

TIME = complete joke

#6 TIME is worth about US$1– now, right? Clearly this is a bid for attention in the hope that those not disgusted will fork over the price of a subscription in solidarity.

#8 But then, who reads Time™ magazine in the Internet Age?

Doctor offices too lazy to cancel the subscription? Soy Boi collector's item?

Anymore it is subliminal messaging via cover to those at checkout lanes or going trough airports, but even that is changing. Only thing left is to auto load ads like pop-ups on peoples' PEDs as they walk within blue tooth range, but I don't think they are desperate or/and stupid enough to do that. Yet.

#9 And no irony lost on the immense amount of resources necessary to manufacture and distribute these magazines to have 99% of them thrown away to make room for the next print.
