The selection of the TIME Person of the Year always managed to inspire some debate. For instance, did you know that it began in 1927 simply to fill a slow news week? And that Stalin has been named Person of the Year twice (as has George W Bush)? And that it was only changed from 'Man of the Year' to 'Person of the Year' in 1999?
Apart from people getting quite shirty when TIME picks groups rather than individuals (like 2011's "The Protestor" or 2006's "YOU") it is often questioned whether TIME should allow people to be chosen when they've done some pretty questionable things.
