I know that earlier I declared “war” on Time magazine and that still stands, but one person that I admire just got even better. I just watched Barbara Walters special on the most influential people of 2011. Its something they have done for years and one of the rules is that the person must be alive. But Walters instead broke the rule and decided to make Steve Jobs the most influential person of 2011, saying that rules were made to be broken just like Steve Jobs believed. The short segment on him was so heartfelt it almost made me cry. It was very touching.
I have always respected Barbara Walters as an excellent journalist but this raised her over top. Why couldn’t have Time see it the way she did. She and Diane Sawyer are my two favorite reporters and Walters just got a big boost. Thanks Barbara for seeing the true influential person of the year.
Thanks for reading,
