At first, I thought they came out with a new list for something and that is why this thread was made.

look at the image, think about the connotations, and observe the one word that pops in to first view.

context is everything, here. they could use the exact same photo at NYT or whatever, but i guarantee you the psychological impact will be different, along with the immediate messages sent because of that first impact.

people in mass are upset by this. what type of person canít cut them a little slack right now?

meh, lots of people are upset over lots of things. There are hundreds of thousands of people (probably millions) in the US upset that a kenyan born non-citizen is president. The best thing the residents of MA can do is ignore this. I havent thought about that terrible magazine in years and they are getting all sorts of additional pub and advertising revenue because of the controversy.

Do I think the image is in poor taste? Yes. Is it worth making a big deal of? No. Who knows what the article says, people are grabbing the image and headline and jumping to conclusions.


And, MLH, rolling stone hasnt been about music since I was a kid. Sure, they still cover it, but its mostly about popular culture. Kind of a younger themed time magazine.

Boo fvcking hoo, I cant believe the inconsequential shit that people get worked up over these days.

Rolling Stone is a great magazine and this choice in cover art doesnt change that.

Hence the boycott. No one is calling for government action (Menino write a letter but that's not the same thing).

Saying that Rolling Stone is a music mag is like saying that MTV is the music video network.

We all know MTV has become a reality tv show network, and we should know that Rolling Stone has just as much focus on politics as it does music these days.

yea, good points. itís possible iím working under some false images of strolling bone, er, rolling stone magazine at this point. i remember from the 80 - 90ís they had some neat interviews and fingers on pulse kind of stuff. perhaps they really went for the national enquirer look since then.

so, yea... i could see that... "itís rolling stone, who gives a shit? i need it for the bottom of my birdcage, man." :P

Rolling stone still has lots of good interviews. Their guy Matt Taibbi has broken countless financial scandals in recent years. This man is one of the best journalists in the business, pretty much the best reporter on anything relating to the financial sector these days.

They are nothing like national enquirer.
