Time's Person of the Year 2018

Time has selected "The Guardians" of the free press as this year's Person of the Year.  Hailing them for "taking great risks in pursuit of greater truths" in what the magazine called a "war on truth," the magazine singled out four different journalists or news organizations to be featured on four different covers. Those honored will be murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi; staff members of the Capitol Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland: Maria Ressa of the Rappler news site in the Philippines; and Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo who have been imprisoned in Myanmar.
