    Rolling Stones and the Boston Bomber cover.

    BBC News - Rolling Stone's Boston bomb suspect cover sparks outrage


    pretty disgraceful front cover in my opinion which glorifies Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, nothng like exploiting a tradegy isnt that right rolling stone?

    Rolling Stone has done current events covers in the past, so this is just another one of them.

    I don't see how calling him a "monster" is glorifying him, but...

    Agreed. Like when Time gave Man of the Year with cover to Khomeini (or before that Stalin - twice!) or when the Nobel folks gave that Ringo Starr look-a-like the Peace Prize.

    Re: Rolling Stones and the Boston Bomber cover.

    A magazine putting out an eye-catching and perhaps controversial cover to promote sales and interest?

    Never....

    It is the image more than anything. It is very Morrison-looking.

    I guess, but that's kind of splitting hairs. "He looks good in this photo taken by somebody else. EVIL!" Unless they took the photo and played with it to make it look good....

    I'm torn. I think that a "real" pic of the bomber like that puts a face on terrorism, and it's not the face people imagine when they hear the term "terrorist". And the pic fits the story based on the description: a seemingly normal kid turns into a mass-murdering monster.

    At the same time, I think that the venue (Rolling Stone) is a bad one for that kind of pic and it's insensitive to the people of Boston to give even the slightest appearance of glorifying the bomber.

    Well first off I do realize that I am probably the last person on this forum that will be objective because of my connection to the bombing, but that picture makes him look rather angelic. I am sure the magazine will sell more because of it, but it is sort of like a slap towards those who were/know people injured.

    didnt they also get in hot water after their front cover featuring charles manson back in the 70's?
