'The Protester' named the 2011 TIME Person of the Year – Bobby Ghosh explains why

This morning, TIME magazine announced it's Person of the Year for 2011 and the winner is "The Protester."

The magazine says that even in the face of a cloud of tear gas or a hail of bullets, the protester prevailed by embodying the idea that individual action can bring collective, colossal change.

Bobby Ghosh, deputy international editor for TIME, joins American Morning today to explain why "the protester" was selected and how the magazine made the decision.
