Hitler - Person of the Year (or Do you trust media?)

Hitler was declared "Person of the Year" from the "prestigious" international TIME magazine in 1938 (see figure above). And guess what happened in 1939: The new "Person of the Year" was... Joseph Stalin! Of course there is no need to tell you that the pictures of these front covers cannot be easily found today... Mass media always promote specific interests and unfortunately independent journalists can be counted with the fingers of one hand (well, after you cut off the fingers). How much do you trust media today?
