    Kim Kardashian's wedding was a bigger story than OWS. It also lasted longer.

    So did the Japanese earthquake, which was worse than Chernobyl and still didn't make the list.

    Wait, what? Fukushima was by no means worse than Chernobyl.

    Yeah unless I'm haven't heard the news of people not being able to move back into the area, there is no way that Fukushima was worse than Chernobyl.

    Judging by that logic, the top story of the year would be pictures that are funny.

    Those were U.S. stories. Surprisingly, killing bin Laden didn't make the list either, but I guess that's because he was killed in Pakistan.

    Crap, I missed the "US" part.

    In that case, I agree with them....

    People still read Time Magazine?

    I don't know how the Bin Laden assassination isn't a US related story


    I'm guessing even if aliens landed at the White House, Time would still have said #OccupyWallStreet was a bigger story

    The Fukushima Dai Ichi plant failure wasn't, but the earthquake and tsunami were obviously bigger disasters than Chernobyl.

    And in the US, the expansion of government debt this year is by far the biggest news. Followed by the LA Police finally solving the baffling murder of Bob Hope.

    Well, obviously Time left that out since all the credit goes to Bush for that one.

    I would've expected Obama lowering unemployment to 3% and how he figured out how to easily eliminate $15T in debt with a snap of his finger...would've been #1. :icon_cool

    Don't understand the Osama snub...it was a pretty important American story. I mean, you can put Iraq up there...and Troy Davis...but not the death of Osama? Whatever Time.

    You guys need to open your eyes. The Rich in this country feed of the suffering of the poor. The Occupy movement is going nowhere until this broken system is stopped and everyone has their fair share. Of course we are the biggest story of the year. Where else do you see anyone fighting for real change.

    Of course i'm the troll. Not the bankers hoarding all the wealth while the rest of use struggle to put food on our tables. I imagine most of you here are part of the "middle class." Well news flash people, you only have what you have because they allow it. They use you as an army of protection against us all.

    Give to enough people and you can **** the rest.
