    Journalism is all about the public's reaction. Clearly, this got a reaction. Whether good or bad is not my decision to make. They are not glorifying anything that the bomber did, they are simply reporting. I don't see any reason for the magazine to apologize; they are REPORTING. Time magazine has put many a terrorist on the cover, I don't see this as being any different.

    I believe in freedom of the press. The Rolling Stone has had a tradition of using it's cover to recognize people of interest usually celebrities, politicians or people that have contributed something positive to society. As far as I know this is the first alleged terrorist to get this recognition. It's their publication do do with as they please even if it breaks from their own tradition. I think it's a slap in the face to the victims of Boston who deserved to be on that cover instead. If the public is outraged they will stop buying the Rolling Stone and this will show the publisher how insensitive this is.

    Let's read the subtitle under The Bomber: "How a Popular, Promising Student was Failed by His Family, Fell into Radical Islam, and Became a Monster." Thanks to following Alex Wagner on Facebook, I was able to read the 5-page article. It should serve as a documentary of warning signs. Ignoring monsters won't make them go away. The Rolling Stone once did a cover story on Charles Manson, citing him as the most dangerous man in America..

    I dont think so making him on the cover of the magazine will give any fame to him he a terrorist and he killed innocent people.
