Commenters: An Early Favorite For Person of the Year

At this point we’re almost as tired of writing about the demise of journalism due to commenters as we are about Barack Obama. And yet, we soldier on. At the moment the one thing both subjects have in common is that we’re betting they’re early favorites for Time‘s ‘Person of the Year’ award. James Poniewozik seems to agree with us, on the commenter front, anyway. He also says that ability to use the caps lock key will not in and of itself sink the Times. Lewis Black, however, says that commenters are worse than ultimate fighting (see video below). Still, Time crowned Vladimir Putin last year, and George W. Bush twice, not to mention, You, so we figure all you commenters at least have a shot at the title.
