The real 100 most influential people of 2010

9 May 2010

Time magazine’s 2010 list of the 100 most influential people is an absolute joke. Lady Gaga? Anyone who’s qualifications include “diva” are automatically disqualified. Sandra Bullock? Snooki? Are these really the “women” we want to put on a pedestal for our youth to emulate? And so it doesn’t look like I’m just tearing down women on the list, you can’t be serious about Neil Patrick Harris? And Dan Coudreaut, really? The head chef of McDonald’s? You can’t be serious.

Since Time’s list is obviously a joke (I can’t really blame them since you need to sell copies by any means necessary in today’s print publishing world) I feel it would be a disservice to America and the world if a real list wasn’t put out. So below, compiled by me and me alone, is the real 2010 list of the 100 most influential people. They’re in no particular order, but are organized by category.






Due to the timing of a recently released documentary by HBO, posthumous recognition goes to Sérgio Vieira de Mello.
