Jorge Ramos Makes Cover of Time 100

By Chris Ariens Comment

Time is out with its 100 list of the most influential people in the world. As in years past, there are multiple covers, 5 in fact. And this year, Univision and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos graces one of them.

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour writes about Ramos’s resoluteness: he “wrangles with President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner; he swims the Rio Grande; he says he asks every question as if it’s his last, determined to get an answer or go down trying. What happened to immigra­tion reform? He knows he has a voice and is not afraid to use it. He shouts from every rooftop that Hispanic rights are human rights.”

Ramos is the only TV news journalist to make the cut, but other media makers are also on the list, including Bob Iger, Lorne Michaels, and John Oliver.

21st Century Fox chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch takes a page from the Disney playbook in writing about his fellow media mogul Iger: “Inheriting a legendary brand is both burden and blessing. Bob Iger could have been haunted by the past, but he has instead created a powerhouse for the company’s future, diversifying the portfolio and yet not traducing the tradition…. Under Bob, Disney is hardly Frozen in time.”

At 17, education activist Malala Yousafzai, is the youngest person on the list. The oldest person, at 88, is Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi.
