Is vs. Ought and OWS

by Jonah Goldberg

Time magazine says that the Occupy Wall Street movement was the number one news story of 2011. Bigger than the sorry economy, more significant than the eurocrisis, more momentous than killing Osama, more relevant than the GOP race or Obama’s failures, or Iran’s nuke program, or the Arab Spring, or the Japanese earthquake, etc. etc.

I’m not at all shocked by the suggestion that Time’s editors want it to be the #1 news story of the year. But if you actually believe it was the most important news story of the year, it’s a very good sign you live in a liberal bubble.
