Time magazine has announced their Person of the Year, and it's a group of people. The title of the report is called "The Guardians and the War on Truth," but we can describe the group as journalists, particularly journalists who paid a steep price. The magazine features four different cover photos of journalists:
Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist who was murdered in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul; the staff of the Capital Gazette newspaper, who kept working after their Annapolis headquarters were targeted by a mass shooter; Kyaw Soe Oo and Wa Lone, Reuters reporters jailed in Myanmar after their reporting on the Rohingya atrocities; and Maria Ressa, whose news site Rappler has reported on the Philippines' brutal drug war President Rodrigo Duterte and now faces tax evasion charges from his administration
Read what Time has to say about these journalists, and why they were selected.
