Was Rolling Stone Editor Stoned When He OKd Terrorist Cover?
Rolling Stone is defending its disgraceful cover photo.
Comment: This reporter was a Rolling Stone freelance contributor back in the day: Bob Dylan discovers his Jewish identity, hash dealing and smuggling in the Holy Land, etc. That the magazine could somehow be stupid or cynical enough to choose a cover photo that seems to glamorize a cold-blooded killer/clerical fascist terrorist is simply mind boggling. The subject should be covered; but rock star-like imaging, intentional or not, is indefensible.
