Rolling Stone

Boycotting Our Cover is a

Boycot of the Constitution

EXCLUSIVE

0717_rollingstone_bomberBostonians upset by the new Rolling Stone cover -- featuring Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev -- need to grow up and learn from the tragedy that rocked their city ... according to the magazine's editors.

The editors just released a statement, saying their hearts go out to the Boston bombing victims -- but "the cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone's longstanding commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage."

The statement continues, "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."

In other words, we're exercising our 1st Amendment rights to investigate a terrorist -- so, stop burying your heads in the sand, people.

As we reported, CVS and the Boston-based Roche Bros. supermarkets have boycotted the latest issue of the magazine because of its controversial cover ... saying it's disrespectful to the victims.

Just like all those people that are boycotting Florida over the George Zimmerman trial. Just get over it.

Rolling Stone made use of its freedom of the press-now the public is making use of its freedom of speech. Seems to me that the constitution is healthy and effectively being used by all parties.

Just as I do not want actors/musicians telling what politician to vote for...I do not want a sell out music magazine informing me about National Security.

Hey Dummy? Your right you do have the right to print and sell it.
But you forget we have the right also to not buy it and not sell it.

The real tragedy here is that nobody is questioning the bomber's intentions. Maybe he MEANT to only hurt a few people...maybe because they DID SOMETHING to HIM...maybe I know this because I TOO am ONE of those people. That eight year old kid your all worked up about? He beat up my kid at school--twice each week for two years. Beyond that, numerous people injured WERE KNOWN to be drug dealer--BIG TIME ROLLERS BUDDY.

Why don't you fukkkerz wake up and read between the lines? Quit bitching about the cover, because that man on it, is a motherfruccing hero.
