FPM Man of the Year[edit]

FPM's 2011 "Man of the Year" was the Wounded Warrior Project.[2]

FPM's 2010 "Person of the Year" was the Tea Party Movement.[3]

FPM's 2009 "Man of the Year" was radio and then-Fox News host Glenn Beck.[4]

On January 1, 2007, FrontPage Magazine named Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean its 2006 "People Of The Year 2006".[5] The two United States Border Patrol agents shot drug smuggler Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila in the buttocks near the US–Mexico border and were convicted of assault with serious bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon, discharge of a firearm in relation to a crime of violence, violating the civil rights of an illegal alien, and obstruction of justice "for not reporting that their weapons had been fired". They had been sentenced to 11 years and 1 day and 12 years imprisonment, respectively, and were subsequently incarcerated.[6] FrontPage Magazine considered them guilty only of "bureaucratic infractions"; "these men have lost their money, their reputations, and (perhaps soon) their freedom trying to protect our nation. For that, they deserve our thanks."[5]

FPM's 2004 "Man of the Year" was John O'Neill, the head of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.[7]

FPM's 2003 "Man of the Year" was Colonel Allen B. West, former commander of the 2nd Battalion, 20th Field Artillery Regiment, 4th Infantry Division, who had been punished with a $5,000 fine and allowed to retire in grade as a lieutenant colonel after being charged with mistreatment of an Iraqi prisoner.[8] The magazine said that West "did what was necessary to keep the troops committed to his charge from becoming the latest headline detailing the Fedayeen's postwar sabotage".[8]
