TIME writer John Cloud in an interview with Brian Montopoli of CJRDaily about Cloud’s cover story on Ann Coulter (for which the cover line read “Ms. Right: Fair and balanced she isn’t. This conservative flamethrower enrages the left and delights the right. Is she serious or just having fun?”):
Brian, Brian, we have put Josef Stalin on the cover. We have made Adolf Hitler the person of the year.
I’ve done a little digging to find the covers of TIME in which Cloud’s interviews of Stalin and Hitler appeared, oddly enough from the same date in 1933.
