Made him look like a rock star. Pathetic.

The only saving grace is that Rolling Stone hasn't been relevant since they let Tom Wolf pretend he was Charles Dickens back in '84.

 

 

But yes you are correct that while the story may have merit the image of a terrorist on their cover shouldn't be vaguely reminiscent of a Jim Morrison image.

But young girls think he's cute. Can't you let him slide?

East Coast bias. They had their choice of two top notch Austinite guitarists to put on the front.

I usually don't get too upset about things that tick off a large number of people, I just pop the popcorn and watch the show, but I just don't understand the point of giving this guy the cover or any kind of publicity.  Who thought this was a good idea?  I mean, I guess if it gets everyone talking about the magazine which doesn't seem vastly popular anymore, that's a win, but I'm just not sure.

Unfortunately I am not shocked by this.

The media gives endless attention to murderers and barely a mention to victims.

I stopped being shocked at Rolling Stone covers when they put this creature on there:

I looked at the Grateful Dead tribute edition they put out last month.
