Which TV News People Should make The ‘Time 100’?

By Alex Weprin 

Time magazine has opened the polling for its 2011 “Time 100,” letting readers vote on who the 100 most influential people are this year.

Right now there are 203 candidates on the list, and only a small handful are from the TV news realm (assuming you don’t count Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert). Only one TV news personality is in the top 100 right now: Fox News host Glenn Beck, who is at #93 as of writing.

That means that at the moment, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and indie band Mumford & Sons are more influential that anyone from the world of TV news, according to the Time poll.

What other TV news people are on the list?

CBS News correspondent Lara Logan at #129
Comcast CEO Brian Roberts at #149
FNC CEO Roger Ailes at #151
FNC contributor Sarah Palin at #189
Former FNC contributor Newt Gingrich at #193

Voting closes April 14th. Vote here.
