TIME magazine has narrowed down its list of finalists for the magazine’s 2018 Person of the Year, and its progressive bias is clearly showing (again).
This year, the shortlist includes Russian President Vladimir Putin, special counsel Robert Mueller, Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, the March for Our Lives anti-gun activists, and Jamal Khashoggi — all hot topics for the anti-Trump press this year. President Donald Trump makes the list too, but he was picked in 2016 and was a finalist in 2017 as well.
But the most egregiously biased nominee by far is “separated families,” a category for the more than 2,000 families affected by the Trump Administration’s “zero tolerance” border policy to discourage illegal immigration.
TIME's Person of the Year shortlist is out and it features "separated families" because "images of frightened, often sobbing children and their distressed parents splashed across newspapers."
Remember when separated families were up for this award during the Obama era? I don't. pic.twitter.com/7CQ2kZ0Oz5

Don’t forget that the media crisis over family separation was built on lies, just like the last time TIME made this issue its cover story.
