CVS and Walgreens not selling RS magazine w/ Boston Bomber-censorship?

Personally I do not think so...RS has the right to put whoever they want on their cover but these companies also have the right not to sell it in their stores.

People boycott sponsors all the time for things they show on TV etc, and companies pull their support of the product. I see a very similar thing happening. Neither CVS or Walgreens want to be associated with this product. I mean look at all the companies who dropped Tiger Woods or Paula Dean for their "word" or "action". I feel CVS and Walgreen can do the same.

If you want to purchase the magazine and feel the article has some merit, I am sure you can find another store to purchase it in,

Exactly! Any company can choose to sell or not sell whatever product they want. If someone wants to buy said item they can find the store that sells it.

Only the government can censor something.

Everything else is a personal/corporate choice.

What they should have done was placed one copy per store, then after it was gone (or bought by an employee) they could simply say there were sold out. No problem with "censorship" then.

It is of course their right to sell what they want to sell, but the decision does make me less likely to shop there in the future. Ridiculous, really.

Exactly. Maybe not the same thing, but reminds me of when libraries/schools want to ban books. Too controversial etc.....I can think for myself thank you very much.

And it might make others want to shop their more...it is the corporate gamble as with anything a corporation pulls away from. I am sure there were plenty of people who thought Nike pulling away from Tiger was ridiculous and there were people who would not buy Nike again.

Funny, their decision makes me more likely to shop there in the future. To each his (her in my case) own.

And their decision to do that makes me want to buy a copy (maybe 2) of Rolling Stone. Haven't read it in awhile, but it makes me want to now.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

So glad to see them take a stand on something they think is wrong.

It's not censorship. They're not preventing you from reading it. They're just choosing not to spend their money on it. You can most certainly buy it elsewhere.

They can make that choice but I can also choose not to shop there. In fairness, I don't particularly care for either store anyway.
