Barbara Walters Names Steve Jobs Most Fascinating Person of 2011, Internet Facepalms
Barbara Walters, who pulled a hilarious “what?" while interviewing Herman Cain during her "most fascinating people" segment, ultimately named Steve Jobs her “most fascinating person of 2011.”
Walter’s list of “most fascinating people of 2011” pits Jobs in the same company as Simon Cowell, the Kardashians, Donald Trump, and a bunch of “fascinating” but, ultimately irrelevant people. Walters, to her credit, has engaged in some very important interviews, most recently with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad who has been accused of murdering over 5,000 of his people in an effort to curb a national uprising.
However, this list of fascinating people should really read “Biggest Spotlight Hijackers of 2011 + Steve Jobs.” While Jobs may have appreciated the gesture from Walters while alive, bestowing him with such an “honor” after his passing comes off as trite, especially considering the others named on the list.
With Time Magazine naming “The Protester,” as their person of the year, it appears Walter’s recognition will have to do as the only posthumous recognition awarded Jobs.

How can you say Derek Jeter is irrelevant?

I respect Jeter's accomplishments and it is his business if he doesn't want to come back to his hometown. But, ultimately he is irrelevant to this community outside of letting those living here say "well jeter is from Kalamazoo."
If Jennings and the packers win another super bowl, "Jeter who?" might be the response kalamazoo natives give when fielding questions about the Yankee shortstop.

He's not irrelevant to New York City which happens to be the business capital (sorry London) of the world. Outside of Kalamazoo no one knows what Kalamazoo is. I don't blame him for not going back.

Steve Jobs wasn't labeled as God by Barbara Walters, and Phillip is upset. How cute.

Derek Jeter, a man who earns lots of money for hitting a ball with a stick. Now what would make that person fascinating or even relevant? Plenty of jocks out there.

And what did Steve do this year to make him the most fascinating person in her eyes?
