Jobs takes over the top spot from Larry Page and Sergey Brin who moved down to the second spot and are followed by Mark Thompson of the BBC at third, Rupert Murdoch at fourth, Evan Williams of Twitter at fifth, Simon Cowell, TV producer at sixth, Mark Zuckerberg at seventh, James Murdoch of News Corp at eight, Jeremy Hunt, the UK’s culture secretary at ninth, and Archie Norman of ITV at tenth.
According to the report:
“The MediaGuardian 100 is intended to be a starting point for debate. It is also a snapshot in time, not just a reflection of the past 12 months, or the next 12 months, and right now Jobs and Apple, the company that he co-founded 34 years ago, are pre-eminent.”
Jobs ranked 4th in last year’s poll.
