Time magazine revealed the 2011 choice for its iconic Person of  the Year cover live on TODAY Wednesday. The Protester is this year’s  choice, managing editor Rick Stengel told Matt Lauer and Ann Curry.

So in the end, it was the image of The Protester — summarizing mass  actions against dictators in the Middle East, anti-drug cartel sentiment  in Mexico, marches against unaccountable leaders in Greece, the  America-spawned Occupy movement, and dissent from the Putin regime in  Russia — that appeared on Time’s 2011 Person of the Year cover.
