Time Magazine's Condescending People of the Year issue-You Work for Nothing But Maybe Time Will Get Paid if you buy their rag

A lot of people have commented recently on Time Magazine's pandering choice of choosing anyone who breathes people who use the internet to share their view of the world to be Person (?) of the Year. Nora Ephron said

Actually the person of the year is "You," as in YouTube and MySpace, as in the World Wide Web - "for seizing the reins of the global media, for founding and framing the new digital democracy, for working for nothing and beating the pros at their own game." Don't you love it? I especially love the part about "working for nothing," I especially love the condescension in that phrase, the dead giveaway about how Time Magazine really feels about the giant collective unwashed, unpaid You Out Here that is nonetheless making life a misery for Them In There -- for the Old Media scrambling to figure out What It Means for things like the future of print, the paper business, network television, privacy, and their jobs, for which (it goes without saying) they are paid.

Yeah. I don't get paid for writing up my opinions. But I'm also not going to run out and support Time magazine, either, just on the basis of the Big Shmooze
