Chavez wins "Person of the Year" poll. Time Magazine ignores result.

Of course this has to do with Chavez calling Bush "the devil" in front of the UN General Assembly a while back, notwithstanding the wild applause he received there (which was promptly ignored by the US media).

Instead, Time names "you" (as in, ikaw) as the 2006 Person of the Year, particularly the people of the Internet, for "community and collaboration on a scale never seen before." Funny how the people who voted for Chavez for Person of the Year got his place instead; funnier still, how these people, awarded by Time, are now the ones burning the mag for its hypocrisy.

Come on, Time. "You" as Person of the Year? That's just lame.
