Thinking about taking all those empites in this weekend? Maybe hold off until you try this.
August is going to be bloody hot month for Rolling Stone magazine. And we’re not talking about the summer heat. The new cover of the Rolling Stone is causing a bonfire online.
I’m sure it’s no surprise for Rolling Stone to wake up this morning to a lot of heat. The latest cover for the magazine has the Boston Marathon bombing suspect on the cover. They must have been ready for the backlash. They felt the same thing back in the 70′s when Charles Manson was featured on the cover.
Or were they ready for this? Back in the good old 70′s – they didn’t have the voice of the people firing back at them by the thousands. 2013 has the internet cannons of Twitter and Facebook raging loud and clear. The debate has been on all morning. Some people say…it’s thought provoking — and isn’t that what journalists are meant to do?…. Others say. Wrong — It’ a glorification of heinous behavior.
