TIME: Person of the Year Revealed For 2018

TIME magazine has chosen a group of people it's calling "The Guardians" as the 2018 Person of the Year. 

The magazine's editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal made the announcement this morning on the Today show and revealed the magazine's cover which features a group of four individuals and one group who have taken risks in pursuit of the truth. These include murdered journalist and Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi; The Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland which was the scene of a mass shooting in June which left five journalists dead; Filipina journalist Maria Ressa whose work has exposed the rise of terrorism in Southeast Asia; and Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo who are imprisoned in Myanmar for investigating a mass execution carried out by the Myanmar Army.
