    Rolling stone cover

    A terrorist on the cover? WTF

    " The cover of Rolling Stone magazine has most often been the domain of musicians, actors, comedians, and the occasional politician. But this week, the periodical has raised eyebrows by letting Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev grace the famous front.

    Re: Rolling stone cover

    The picture itself does not bother me since plenty of infamous people have been on the cover of magazines before. I am a bit irritated with the caption though:

    How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster."
    I don't know why the media cannot seem to hold this guy accountable for his actions. They want to blame everything else except the individual.

    Maybe they don't care because they feel magazines can put whoever they want on the cover?

    Sure - and I didn't even vote.

    I don't care because it's the ROLLING STONE magazine. I've never cared about the publication, thus, I feel nothing. It's the same as his face being on the front of any other magazine. It's not like they set their standards high for moral figures and ethical standards, to boot, they've put all sorts of unethical and immoral people on the cover who wrapped their lives around drugs and light poles.

    I wouldn't care because Rolling Stone mostly sucks. That being said, they picked a really bad photo. They inadvertently or purposefully made the guy into a Jim Morrison, which, yes, would justifiably upset a lot of people. But it also gets us talking about it, which is what print magazines need.

    I probably only care honestly because it happened to my hometown, where I normally stand for the marathon, and hurt my friends.

    Freedom of speech and freedom for the press. They can publish this if they want and I can choose not to buy it and say it was insensitive and paints the murderous terrorist in a good light.

    They still print Rolling Stone?

    Any other cover people I don't care about that I have missed as well?
