Former President George H.W. Bush hospitalized in Houston, official says

Rolling Stone Boston bomber cover stirs controversy


Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will get the full rock star treatment as he's featured on the cover of the Aug. 3 edition of Rolling Stone magazine.

The cover image is a selfie of Tsarnaev with shaggy hair, a teenager's goatee and a title that reads "How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster." The cover story is written by contributing editor Janet Reitman.

From Boston.com:

The cover story, "Jahar's World," reveals that Tsaranev played down his Muslim faith in high school, once told a friend that terrorist attacks could be justified, and may have been willing to surrender during a standoff in Watertown on April 19 because of a plea from a former wrestling coach.

Reaction to Rolling Stone magazine's cover photo and story has been brutal on the Boston.com version on this story:

 

  • The image on the cover of Rolling Stone likens a terrorist to a rock star, what an incredibly irresponsible act...almost unbelievable...and a testament to how desperate this magazine has become...go bankrupt already and stop taking up space in our culture. Gross.Pathetic of Rolling Stone to even consider this terd on the cover.
  • He killed a 6 year old and blew the legs off man, many more........oh, I MEAN ALLEGEGED for all you pathetric ESQ types out there. Wake up Rolling Stone your magazine is dead like his killer brother.
  • The poor kid. I hope there is a death penalty in the near future. I would hate to have the poor young thing suffer for long.
