A blogger could become "Media Person of the Year"

Donny Deutsch will announce the winner of the Media Person of the Year on CNBC's "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch" on Monday. According to Deutsch, the frontrunner in the contest sponsored by I Want Media is shock jock Howard Stern, but there are a number of darkhorse candidates in the running, including Craig Newmark of Craig's List and Nick Denton of Gawker Media:

"Blog pal Arianna Huffington calls Nick Denton "the Rupert Murdoch of the blogosphere." Actually, his Gawker Media stable of popular blogs seems more like Conde Nast of blog world, attracting desirable demos and big-name advertisers. While Jason Calacanis sold his Weblogs outfit to AOL and Andrew Sullivan hooked up his blog to, Denton licensed Gawker content to Yahoo, insisting that "the whole point about blogs is that they're not part of big media." Denton and his crew of scrappy, buzz-making bloggers have probably done more than about anyone to establish blogs as a legit alternative medium."

Let's just hope that Martha Stewart doesn't win. (yes, she's one of the 10 candidates)

Adverse effects seen with griseofulvin therapy include headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,
photosensitivity, peripheral neuritis, and occasionally mental confusion. Griseofulvin is derived
from a penicillium mold, and cross-sensitivity with penicillin may occur.
