TIME Magazine have revealed their Person of the Year for 2018

In this instance, it's a number of people.

TIME Magazine are never ones to shy away from putting political messages on their front cover.

They have made their feelings on Donald Trump perfectly clear since he was elected in 2016, and have published a number of negative images of the politician in the past 12 months alone.

And despite the fact that he has appeared on many of the front pages this year, he hasn't been made their Person of the Year this year.

The recipients of this year's Time Magazine Person of the Year is "The Guardians".

The Guardians refers to journalists who have acted extremely bravely throughout the year Jamal Khashoggi, the Capital Gazette, Maria Ressa, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo.

Jamal Khashoggi was a Saudi Arabian journalist who was brutally killed in Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul on 2 October 2018 by agents of the Saudi government.

Members of staff at The Capital Gazette were the victims of a shooting in America earlier this year, where five members of staff were killed.

Maria Ressa has reported from war zones in Southeast Asia for the past year, and Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are two Reuters journalists who investigated the massacre of ten Rohingya men and boys in a village in western Myanmar’s Rakhine state.
