Time Magazine December 31 2018 Person of the Year Jamal Khashoggi
Time Magazine (December 24 2018/December 31 2018) Person of the Year The Guardians of the War on Truth Jamal Khashoggi Cover.
Time magazine named a group of journalists, including the murdered Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi, as its person of the year for 2018, honoring their dedicated pursuit of the truth despite a war on facts and tremendous obstacles, including violence and imprisonment.
The choice was a nod to the spread of misinformation in the United States and abroad by leaders who have sought to quash critical independent journalism. And it offered a not-so-subtle rebuke to President Trump, an avid follower of the Person of the Year honor who, when asked last month about the upcoming decision, replied, “I can’t imagine anybody else other than Trump.”
