Sorry, next time I have an opinion I won't post it on a forum meant to share opinions.
Either way, calm down :)


Or you could just stop dictating others with your opinions. And maybe use those opinions in creations YOU are responsible for.

The day I stop bashing dictation will be a sad one indeed. Peace.

I really don't care that he's on the cover, but I do have a problem with the sub-headline seeming to place the blame for his actions on others rather than him; and the 'oh, he used to be so nice!' kind of crap always tends to come across as if it's meant to be a justification for terrible crimes.

However, personally I'd reserve judgement until seeing the entire article.

Well CVS did the right thing by stopping the sale of the magazine in their stores.

You can only go over the line so much until the line finally breaks in half, and that's exactly what Rolling Stone did here. A magazine that used to be about music has now become in desperation of keeping their business afloat by sinking to the lowest of low.

^This.....and WTF is it with blaming the parents? Plenty of us had F'd up childhoods, and sh*tty parents and we're not going around killing people. Stupid media promoting lack of personal responsibility. Yeah, let's all blame someone else for all our problems.

The problem I see with the cover is that it gives the guy further notoriety. There are plenty of criminals that view the added fame, either positive or negative, as a plus. Journalists shouldn't encourage them by doing that. That is journalistic irresponsibility cowardly hiding behind the guise of free speech. A picture of the event instead of the dude would've suffice. I guess at least they practice what they preach, that nobody should have any personal responsibility for anything.

I'm from Boston. This may be the only time I ever post anything on CR.....but putting that bastard on the cover....it's not right...not right at all. I nearly drank myself stupid after seeing that story on the news the other night.
People from all around know about what that lowlife did....it's heartbreaking. But to be honest if your not from Boston or personally knew a person or persons whom was injured you could never relate to the anger, rage, and the undeniable fear we felt. It was a ghost town everywhere you went...most surrounding towns literally shut down...children were on school vacation trapped inside their homes. I live minutes away from where that sorry excuse for a human was caught....prior to him being caught the only time I went outside my home was to smoke a Newport....that was it.

Honestly.......how happy and social would most of you feel knowing that there is a terrorist on the loose 15 mins away from your home.


oh....by the way.....ROLLING STONES...FUCK YOU!!!!

That magazine has strayed so far away from music nowadays, and has become more centered towards liberal politics and TV.

I think I bought a Dave Matthews Band album like 7 or 8 years ago and got a subscription to Rolling Stone for a year and thought it sucked. It's like the equivalent to MTV, where nowadays you don't see actual music television until the dead of night, if they even still do that.

On to the actual idea of them putting a terrorist on the cover, I'm surprised they would've opted to make it a cover photo. I can't see that doing any good for them. It probably doesn't bode well for those that commit these type of acts for the infamy anyways.

RS, I am disappoint.


Well you know where you initially went wrong right?

you bought a Dave Matthews CD,

And we wonder why some of these domestic terrorist make videos and do all they can to murder innocent people. All Rolling Stone did was announce loud and clear that if you kill a bunch of people, you'll be famous.

I don't like it. This is only going to give the people who commit acts of terror for infamy even more of a reason. These people should be shunned, punish, and forgotten about. But instead we keep bringing them up, we keep placing them on a pedestal. Mind you, a pedestal of negativity is still a pedestal. So saying horrible things about the terrorist, and reminding the public not to do these things is pointless. The want the attention. They want to go down in history as a mass murder. They want the negativity. That's why it's best to ignore them. But the press needs a nice header to bump up sales, so fuck logic.

Funny enough though, that was the last album I bought of theirs. The recent stuff has been doodoo, but the early stuff is classic.

I think they could've done a lot better for themselves if they'd have not made it the cover story. They could've ran the story as it is, and maybe even left the font on the front cover to catch the attention of the reader, but had someone like Kanye West or Jay-Z on the cover (they're the only big names I can think of that just had new releases).
