The Story Behind The Story: It’s “Time”

Updated
 
Every Thursday we unveil the latest issue of Time Magazine with Managing Editor Rick Stengell.  But this week’s installment took on added significance, when we announced Time’s 2011 list of the most influential people in the world.  As always, the list features a potpourri of interesting, charismatic and controversial individuals, including the likes of Joe Biden, Gabby Giffords and “Tiger Mom” Amy Chua.  It also included one addition that caught our attention in particular.  But as usual, we at Morning Joe like to have a little fun with these things.  So instead of focusing on the obvious, Joe took the opportunity to voice his interest in some of the big name celebrities on the list.  Frankly, we didn’t know Joe was such a fan of Blake Lively and bride-to-be Kate Middleton.  And in the end, he couldn’t avoid the inevitable: Joe Scarborough had made the Time 100.  Congrats, Joe!
