‘The protester’ named Time’s person of year
"We thought 'these dictators are not going to be toppled.' And then these people who risked their lives, risked their livelihoods to go out there and brought about change that nobody had expected. It really is a transformational thing and I think it is changing the world for the better,"
- Time managing editor Richard Stengel
'The protester' was named Time magazine's person of the year Wednesday, a tribute to those bringing change across the Arab world as well as anti-corporate greed demonstrations in the US and Europe.
"There's this contagion of protest," Time managing editor Richard Stengel said on NBC television. "These are folks who are changing history already and they will change history in the future."
