    Has nothing to do with right wing/left wing nonsense. I'm a conservative, considered by you to be a right winger - I strongly object to the gang/mob attempts to dictate what I read or don't read and what I purchase or don't purchase.

    Good point - equally important to the discussion above, did a whole slue of Americans suddenly become Hitler wannabees when they saw the photo?

    As are the Boston bombers -- perhaps not the year, but certainly news worthy.

    If his actions were actually glorified in some way in the actual text -- say, by calling him a martyr as does al Jazeera towards various terrorists in their Arabic editions -- then I would have serious issues with it. For just writing the article and having his picture on the cover, not so much.

    In your view - and you're perfectly entitled to it - what you're not entitled to, in my view, is to shout down and try to ban things you don't agree with.

    I think it all depends on HOW a picture and article are used. Is it glorifying or is it cautionary? It is the spin rather than the inclusion of the pic that counts.

    I haven't read the article to know, but if it acts as apologetics, then I would be extremely critical. If it is honest about ideology and how it can motivate to do horrible things, then I would see it as illustrative rather than glorifying.

    Well, I guess I understand that. Being he is basically an evil person, motivated by emotion and religious divisiveness and youthful stupidity. I get the same feeling when they put the Prince of Kenya's picture on Time magazine. A feeling of utter disgust.

    Who is telling you what to read or not read?

    I don't think it's glorification at all. It's a magazine. A controversial magazine - always has been. Don't like? Don't buy.
