8 votes: was so infuriated by the cover that they've run 418 articles about it...each featuring a picture of the horrible cover

J.Shelby: The cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone's long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day. The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens. -THE EDITORS

When was the last time they did a study of their readers? 1978?

I can't believe how stupid some people are about this stupid glammed up cover.  They need to just go fark themselves.  People with emotions are sooooo stupid.  Dead people and kids with missing limbs just need to get over it already.

Also, something about how it is just conservatards getting upset about it.... enlightened liberals are totally hip.

Incorrigible Astronaut: When was the last time they did a study of their readers? 1978?

Seriously.  The kid was 19, and if I recall correctly was 18 in that picture.  RS hasn't catered to the 18yo age group in eons.  For fark's sake, 18yo practically never touch physical, printed, magazines anymore.

If anything, the demographic of RS these days is waiting rooms at orthopedic doctor's offices....

DigitalSorceress: I don't question the article - but to give him a front page shot on Rolling Stone looking like a rock star? I can see why some folks are a bit bothered by it.

Hey, Stop being reasonable! We don't cotton to that 'round here!

MyRandomName: Most of these facts in the story were found in various other stories. Sorry I don't find it interesting to explain away someone's actions.

Ohhhhh, you're one of those people that has difficulty distinguishing "understand the causes of" and "make excuses for". You could clean up in the next Republican primary.

Bontesla: Why shouldn't they show us the banality of evil?

They could have at least drawn devil horns and a Snidely Whiplash mustache on him. Without them, I have no idea how to feel about this guy.

Bullseyed: and I'm yelling at the radio "ALLEGES?!?! It was proven with SCIENCE, entered as EVIDENCE in a COURT OF LAW and confirmed by a JURY. There is NO ALLEGING ABOUT IT."

At some point, does it occur to you that maybe...just maybe... you have a problem with outrage addiction?

I'm glad Rolling Stone did this.  I think the prisons should give the magazine to every inmate in America.  It should whip them up with anticipation of rape while the kid is being tried and convicted.

p the boiler: Time Magazine Person of the Year (and on the cover)
1938 - Adolf Hitler
1939 - Joseph Stalin
1942 - Joseph Stalin
1979 - Ayatollah Khomeini
1995 - Newt Gingrich

You mean bad guys get cover shots too? This is an outrage.

You left out the absolute worst "person of the year": 2006.
