...doesn't that mean that, using Time's line of reasoning, Andrea Yates, the Houston woman who drowned her five children in a bathtub in their home should be.... [size=4]Mother of The Year[/size=4] Eric The(ThinkAboutIt!'GreatestImpact'Etc...)Hun[>]:)]

What? Have they named him MOTY?
Link Posted: 12/8/2001 6:23:08 AM EDT
Not yet, but considering all the 'buzz' just the hint that he might be MOTY is making the story a sure-fire winner for them! Can you imagine the masses in Islamdom reacting to the fact that a great(?) American journal has referred to their 'hero' as the MOTY? It would be the absolute worse thing for Time to do - talk about giving air and comfort to the enemy in time of war... Eric The(ABullet&APorkBloodbathForOne,Please)Hun[>]:)]

Wow. If they have the ignorance to do that, and at this point I wouldn't put anything past them, the boycott potential is great and wide. Think of all the companies that are owned by AOL/Time Warner!

'If they have the ignorance...'? Of course they have a virtual lock on it, for the media not only buys printer's ink by the barrels, but [b]abject ignorance[/b] in bulk quantities, as well! [>]:)]

They should be boycotted out of business just for considering it. What do you expect from anti-gun AOL?

I thought they renamed it to "Person of the year." They do feature women on occasion. Av.

Check this out Avalon1 - [url]http://www.time.com/time/special/moy/moypast.html[/url] It's Time Magazine's website for MOTY, for past years. [>]:)]

Time has never made a dead man MOTY, Looks like we only have a few weeks to take him off the eligibility list

Hun.. Bitchn'! Looks like Time hasn't caved into the PC crowd yet. Av.

If he get's person of the year... DDOS Attack on time.com all year until the next one is chosen. Keep time.com DOWN all year. I don't know how to do it, but I am sure out of the millions of pissed off people someone will. In the real world, tear every cover you see so it won't get purchased... It is sick of them to attempt to profit of this man. Truly sick.

Based on Time's standards he is MOTY. I don't like it either but no one has had more of an impact this year than he. You could even argue for man of the decade, etc. Man of the last century would have to be Hitler, IMO, and he was MOTY twice. People got plenty pissed about that as well. That's my 2 cents. Now flame me, flame me! Shit its damn cold up here today and I could use a little heat.

Jeez, people. 'Man of the Year' isn't necessarily a good thing. It's basically saying this person played a very important role in events of the year. Note that that isn't 'good' role. Just significant. I'd say Bin Laden qualifies. The famous as well as the infamous have been MOTY before.

Does anyone still read that magazine? I don't think I've looked at a copy in ten years.

No kidding. The newsweeklies are a fricking joke now. Not to mention subtly biased and with awful writing, with a strictly American point of view and focus. The only newsweekly worth reading is The Economist. It has it's own biases, but it presents them openly and supported by reasoned arguments and evidence. It covers international issues much more in depth and actually cares about the world's point of view. But it does so without being anti-American. Which is awfully refreshing these days. Yeah, such wonderful people as Kissinger, Stalin, and Hitler have been named Man of the Year. Bin Laden and his Islamists have changed the world. For the worse.

Time? Who reads that piece of socialist crap? Eddie

Then I stand by my original statement - If Osama Bin Laden is Time's MOTY simply because of the [b]impact[/b] he's made, the Andrea Yates deserves to be Mother of the Year! Simple. Just disregard any positive connotations that you may have about what 'anything' of the year might mean. [b]I can't think of any woman who's had a greater impact on the lives of her children, then Andrea Yates![/b] Eric The(DoYou'GetIt'?)Hun[>]:)]

Can't argue with you there Eric! [:D] Who reads Time? Morons that's who! And, by a magical coincidence, the same type of people who write it: Morons! I'll stick with The New American.

Why would naming him MOTY be inappropriate? It's not a title given to the best or greatest, just the person who has had the greatest impact. Consider that: 1. Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Haile Selassie, and (barf) FDR were all named back in the 1930's, why is this any worse? 2.The man is responsible for the worst attack EVER on U.S. soil. 3 months later, it's all people ALL OVER THE WORLD are talking about. The guy has had a HUGE impact this year worldwide, even if it's a bad one.

If he is chosen I believe it would be a good choice.
