I’m no Editor-In-Chief of one of the biggest and most culturally influential magazines of all time, but putting a photo of a suspected murderer and terrorist onto the cover of your magazine making him look as iconic as Jimi Hendrix, it’s probably not good for business. Or maybe it is good for business because it gets people talking about the magazine, but it’s probably not good for your image.
People are outraged, not so much at the story, but at how he’s seemingly glorified in the picture and the caption. Take away the article and just leave those two items on the cover and people could swear there’s a new hot artist named The Bomber who are taking the charts by storm.
Not a good look, Rolling Stone.
