Who Should be the 2006 Media Person of the Year?

November 17th, 2006 10:34 AM
Media blog I Want Media is taking nominations for Media Person of the Year. Last year it was Anderson Cooper. Who do our NewsBusters readers think should be the Media Person of the year?
Forget Time magazine's Person of the Year. Who should be named Media Person of the Year in I Want Media's fifth annual online poll?

Which figure in the media industry inspired the most debate, sparked the most interest, left a lasting imprint?

An influential media CEO ... a crusading journalist ... a ground-breaking blogger? Here's an opportunity to take a look back at the year in media through some of its leading (and sometimes over-the-top) personalities.

Include a brief explanation as to why the person you nominate deserves to be recognized. Your comments may be posted on the site.

The online-only poll opens Monday, Nov. 27, 2006. Be sure to check back to cast your vote.
