I Want Media’s 2011 Media Person of The Year: Steve Jobs

Ugh. Of course I Want Media’s 2011 Media Person of The Year is Steve Jobs. We thought Jill Abramson was going to pull it out. Seems to us that being the first woman in charge of the best newspaper in the world is more important than making expensive toys, but few of you agreed with us.

According to the voting Jobs blew away the competition, grabbing 42 percent of the vote. The runner-up was Rupert Murdoch, with 18 percent of the votes. Does that mean some people hate-voted? Maybe. Does that mean News Corp. hacked the voting system just enough to make Murdoch look good, but not enough for anyone to question the results? We would never say that.

Check out the rest of the finalists here.
