Since when does TIME Magazine deserve any credibility?

Answer: I'd say that TIME lost it's credibility, at least in terms of character judgement, way back in the year 1938.

For those who don't know, TIME has named George W. Bush their "Person of the Year for 2004. This puts Bush in the same company as the likes of Adolf Hitler (1938), Joseph Stalin (1939 & 1942), and Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini (1979).

Such a distinction should not be taken as a sign of praise when you consider certain previous winners.

This "honor" was never intended to be read as "Best Person of the Year" but rather "Most Newsworthy Person of the Year." Time seems less willing to bother correcting this misconception as each year goes by. It's too much trouble.
