Regardless of how someone feels about Stalin, the Pope, or JFK, listing "Greta the girl in that funny gif" alongside them is a journalistic whoopie cushion.

As the Nobel Prize committee has surely realized by now, you can pull this type of whackiness once and stir a buzz, but if you do it 2, 3, 4 times, people just stop paying attention.
I mean I don't cosign their choice to be clear. I think the Hong Kong protestors or somebody else would be more fitting. In the grand scheme, history will be more affected by them than by her most likely.

But smart or not, right or not, Greta was the subject of an immense amount of media coverage. Being a person who stirs up this much buzz seems to be of interest to this magazine historically when choosing who to pick.

I'm more critical of the Nobel peace prize, since it presumably is meant to acknowledge some actual positive achievement. Apart from Obama I can't recall someone winning it that I didn't feel made sense though.
