    Not that I disagree with you, but I think there is a better way of showing that then they did. They could have showed him sitting at a table with friends, which gives the same type of message, but not necessarily making him looking like Morrison

    There are likely legal problems with such a picture - need to black out the others in the photo, etc. and not all those who knew/know him want the public at large to know that. But I get your point. The man looks the way he looks, though - you can't change that - and usually magazine covers are just headshots or full body shots and just one subject.

    If you think about it, this is the reverse of the Trayvon Martin pics - with all the sweet pics of Trayvon, some from years ago put up as recent photos, people couldn't believe that such a sweet young boy could possibly beat up another man to the point where he was shot. Here you have a man who's been accused of doing terrible things and people are objecting to him being portrayed as a normal teenage kid.

    Never....

    i suggest to promote sales, they put Hitler picture on the cover, and make statements to the effect of " was Hitler justified in his positions he held", want some controversies, and interest building, .........there you go.

    No, I'm not surprised that Jann Wenner (ick) has glorified a terrorist in this way. I'm surprised, because their numbers are declining, I think, that there are still significant numbers of people who find this in poor taste.

    He kinda looks like a young Bob Dylan.

    Probably not the right picture to put on the cover if you're doing legitimate story on him. There are plenty of pics that don't make him look "hip" out there.

    You think I know them by name? If I knew that, I'd probably be working for the CIA or something.

    You're right - he does look like a young Bob Dylan. I still don't think there's anything wrong with the cover, unless Bob Dylan is complaining.

    The face of terrorism comes in many forms and if it makes people uncomfortable that in this case it comes in the form of a young Bob Dylan, then so be it.

    Yeah but there are pictures of him that doesn't make him look like a rockstar. Frankly, I could give a crap about this. Who actually reads Rolling Stone anyway.....kind of like MTV, should have stuck to music.

    Apparently, Rolling Stone Magazine didn't advise it's sponsors in advance that it would be having such a controversial cover story. I guess a lot of the sponsors are very unhappy about that.
