Default OT - "The Bomber" Rolling Stone's Cover

Not sure if you all have seen this yet, but I was caught off guard by the insensitivity and audacity of RS to put this guy on the cover. He is not a celebrity, he is a terrorist and this only feeds his psycho supporters and puts this guy in the "limelight"... In my opinion this was very insensitive and disrespectful to the families and victims of the Boston Marathon bombing and I think any of the survivors would have been my obvious choice if they wanted to go that route.

This in my eyes is almost rewarding the guy, he gets his face on the cover of a very prominent magazine and from what it sounds like the article tries to make the readers sympathetic to the bomber.

Its very simple. They are trying to sell magazines. If you get all pissy and upset, and spread it around to your friends, they get exposure and win. If you ignore them, they lose. Delete thread.

Rolling Stone obviously knows how to sell copies. This has shock value, and of course people will buy it. Is it insensitive? I don't know, i wasn't impacted by the bombing...except for the fact that i'm so sick and tired of hearing about Boston. The one thing I was sure of when this happened was that we were going to be hearing Boston do what it does best and that is for it to talk about Boston.

Dude since magazines were invented, they have been putting controversial people and mass murderers on covers. There is absolutely nothing "new" about it.

I think the difference is they didn't use his mug shot but used a digital enhanced glamour shot to make him look like a cool dude.

So what, he was a good looking kid, probably very intelligent, who suprsisingly blew up people in Boston, and I have heard the article details how he was justifying the 9/11 attack in High School, and trasitoned to radicalized Islam.....

Its a fascinating story, people probably want a glimpse inside that kids head...and how he could become so evil, killing people are completely innocent of any crime or infraction of his beliefs...


I have no issue with the article, and if people don't like it, they can chose not to buy it.

What type of "consequences" are you suggesting in this case? You might want to read the First Amendment.

That is ridiculous to include one of the best Presidents we have had, must have been a mistake...I would say you could easily put Obama in that group.

Agreed. And someone might want to relay this to the ones who complain about the Washington Redskins, and anything else they find "offensive".

FTR, I've never read RS magazine....but if I did, I would certainly cancel a membership now. That's how you hit them.....then advertisers pull out.....eventually, they'll go out of business.

So noone here had read the actual article?

Pity but not surprised. Its a incredibly well reported story.

It earned the cover for a reason.

But who cares!? Feelings!

Would you prefer the FCC screen all content private enterprise produces before it prints it....

your sound pretty conservative, I assume you like the protections of free speech, no?

I disapprove of Rolling Stone for this cover and story. A pox on their house.

I dont disagree with the shock value and them wanting attention and readers, but it doesnt change the fact that it is a disrespectful article for a non-relavent magazine... to think that last couple cover people were ; Rihanna, Justin Beiber and Johnny Depp... they have to resort to this.
