"Bernie Sanders was a smash hit among readers of TIME in its polling of who should be named person of the year for 2015. But Mr. Sanders, his supporters and TIME’s readers were all snubbed and ripped off when he was not even chosen as one of the eight finalists.

To add insult to injury, the same TIME editors who didn’t include Mr. Sanders did include Donald Trump, in a stunning reveal of the arrogance and self-interest of corporate media that Mr. Sanders has led the charge to condemn—with good reason, in my view—throughout the campaign.

Sanders supporters should retaliate with a massive wave of small donations to his campaign."

It should also be noted that Hitler was on Time Magazine's cover 6 times in the late 1930s, and was Man of the Year in 1939.  Time does not have a good record of picking good people.
