Mark Zuckerberg, Time's 2010 'Person of the Year,' earns unflattering cover

15 December 2010 6:35 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Time magazine bestows the year-in-review's highest honor to 26-year-old Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for "changing how we all live our lives" and inspiring one of the year's most lucrative and lauded films, "The Social Network."

So what do you give the multi-billionaire who has everything? An untouched, slightly jarring portrait, filling almost the entire cover.

Every freckle, mole, follicle, pore and eye-vein seems highlighted on poor Zuckerberg's mug, which, adding insult to injury, is locked in a bit of a vacant stare. It's almost reminiscent of The Atlantic's 2008 John McCain cover, where photographer Jill Greenberg infamously edited the presidential nominee in an unflattering light.

But Time seems to like Zuckerberg. They did choose him over WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who many expected to earn the magazine's highest acknowledgment.

Zuckerberg joins the eclectic ranks of winners, including recent title-holders Ben Bernanke, Barack Obama and "you" -- as well as historical selections like 1938 cover boy Adolf Hitler. »
