A group of journalists whose work has landed them in jail — or cost them their lives — has been named TIME’s Person of the Year for 2018.

Jamal Khashoggi is the Washington Post columnist murdered for his criticism of the Saudi crown prince.

Maria Ressa is the editor of a Philippine news website renowned for its critical coverage of its president’s controversially violent policies.

Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are two Reuters journalists who were arrested in Myanmar while investigating a massacre of Rohingya Muslims.

"The public narrative of Mueller's investigation this year has often described its central character more as myth than man.".

Others who made the 2018 shortlist include the student activists who led a march on Washington — and hundreds of satellite marches across the world. »

"In Washington DC, Nazis don’t work, Communists don’t work at all, and the Dark Ones don’t work.

That's obviously a very stereotypical take on Russian-ness, but it's also at the core of the Metro games.

Glukhovsky said he's still "optimistic" about a Metro 2033 film being made, and expressed hope that the upcoming release of Metro Exodus will help the process by exposing the series to a wider audience. »
