Another Take: Explaining the Rolling Stone Cover, by a Boston Native

Another take. Is Rolling Stone Magazine correctly attacked for the DzhokharTsarnaev cover photo or is this yet another unwarranted media no news news hype?

NB: I have read the left of center Rolling Stone Magazine from its inception in the radical left late 1960's. It has become serious journalism at its best. Matt Taibbi is one of the most excellent and entertaining tell-it-like-it-is journalists I have ever read. His many exposés of the financial fraud debacle of 2007/8, his book Griftopia, and his revelatory article about General Stanley McChrystal Commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan have been brilliant.

The article responding to the Rolling Stone cover by him is here or below.
