Bush beats Moore for ‘Person of the Year’

Erk. My warm mood just dissipated:

U.S. President George W. Bush’s bold, uncompromising leadership and his clear-cut election victory made him Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” for 2004, its managing editor says. Time chose Bush “for sticking to his guns (literally and figuratively), for reshaping the rules of politics to fit his 10-gallon-hat leadership style and for persuading a majority of voters this time around that he deserved to be in the White House for another four years,” Jim Kelly wrote in the magazine.

So am I naive for not realising that Time Magazine is the paper (I refuse to say literary) equivalent of Fox News?
