Time magazine took the wraps off its choice for 2018 “Person of the Year.” In a piece published Tuesday under the headline “The Guardians and the War on Truth,” the publication singled out “The Guardians” — journalists who have been targeted for their work.

“Worldwide, a record number of journalists — 262 in total — were imprisoned in 2017, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, which expects the total to be high again this year,” Time notes.

“For taking great risks in pursuit of greater truths, for the imperfect but essential quest for facts, for speaking up and for speaking out, the Guardians — Jamal Khashoggi, the Capital Gazette, Maria Ressa, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo — are Time’s Person of the Year,” the publication reports.
