Rolling Stone being pilloried in the news

They put the surviving Boston Bomber on the cover and the well meaning non illiterati are sh!tting bricks. Couldn't be because RS has people like Matt Taibi, et al on staff? Now, could it?

The devil takes many forms. Always has always will. I've know some who at first were real lookers turned out to be very ugly people on the inside.

OK what's the hoopla? Really??? The actions he did color ones perception anyway. Just goes to show you never know what is going on in ones mind.

I think the objection is that the RS photo is awfully flattering for someone who caused so much pain and suffering.

I don't think either photo is particularly "flattering". I think Bob is correct in thinking that perhaps some folks are simply using it as an excuse to attack a traditionally liberal magazine.

A very emotional and reactionary display of bad behaviour, wouldn't you agree?

Maybe. But RS has already put a semi "Mea culpa" on their web site accompanying the article which seems to side-step the issue of the "glam" photo.

RS has done some excellent journalistic work over the years, but they've also had a history of pursuing magazine covers that elicit a "reaction" from their readers. I guess they shouldn't be too surprised when they get a reaction from some that is negative.
