Some very good nominees above.

I’d also add legit, credible journalism as a “person” here. We’d all be incomparably worse off without them all.

The Hong Kong Protestor.

Now there's a group willing to stick their necks out for liberty. Unlike the Party of the Furrowed Brow.

Despite all the impeachment drama, it really has to go to the Hong Kong Protestors.

Probably true, but Americans don't care about that.

Once again, there is one person in the news that EVERYONE is talking about EVERY day. No one and no thing gets as much attention in the press. The choice is obvious.

The criterion is “the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or ill, and embodied what was important about the year.” [time.com]

It's very obvious who has affected the news and our lives the most, but perhaps there is something in 'embodied what was important about the year' that might take it in another direction, but I think you really have to reach for it. The answer is Trump until he dies imo. Or until he's is no longer in the headlines every damned day!

No one in my entire lifetime has spent so much time in the headlines for so long - no one else even comes close.

Russia.

They have perpetrated one of, if not the, most egregious, damaging, unrelenting attacks on this country to ever happen.

They have done it without firing a shot. It has already torn the social fabric of the country to shreds, and still has the potential to topple the country as it has existed for centuries.

They have waged the first 21st century war and are at least half way to victory.
