Rolling Stone plants a bomb

A lot of people is criticizing Rolling Stone Magazine for putting Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the accused Boston Marathon bomber, on the cover of its last issue.

Here the respond from Rolling Stone on its Facebook page:

"Our Hearts go out to the victims of the Boston Marathon, and our thoughts are always with them and their families. The cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism the 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"

Maybe they're right and their hearts go out to the victims but without any doubt their heads go out to the money. They were trying to sell magazines and they did it. For me, the main problem is that not everybody is going to read the article. A lot of young people are going to see a guy who looks a little bit like Jim Morrison, kills a lot of people and is now on the cover of Rolling Stone.
