A the year draws to a close get prepared for the usual onslaught of lists! We all know Time‘s Person of the Year is a non-compete, but I Want Media, which has just launched its yearly Media Person of the Year poll may provide a slightly more open playing field. Here are your choices: Arianna Huffington, Rachel Maddow, Sam Zell, Rupert Murdoch, Tina Fey, The Twitter Trio, Mel Karmazin, Jason Kilar, Eric Schmidt, and closest to our hearts, “The Laid-Off Journalist” (also, Page Six’s pick).
Think they left some out? They are also taking nominations. We would argue that due to his magazine and newspaper selling power (not to mention the YouTube fireside chats) Barack Obama is a obvious but viable choice. Also, how about the citizen journalist, or Tina Brown? Let us know your suggestions!
