From the Vaults of TIME

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.
