InfoWars founder among finalists for TIME’s 2019 Person of the Year?

Why not Jones for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 45-year-old journalist, as a 2019 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Jones so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the journalist have already been named ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Dallas Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Dallas (Alex Jones' hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the journalist was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“#JonesPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”
— @TomMiller, 17 Feb 2019
“Congrats! Alex has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 17 Feb 2019
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Alex Jones?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 17 Feb 2019

Could 2019 officially be the Year of Alex Jones?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2019 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2019?
