Good for them

Rolling Stone will never get a dime from me, this terrorist and child killer is some sort of Rock Star? Good for CVS and Walgreens. I will stop by both stores in the next day or two and buy a couple of their other magazines. I hope other companies pull their sponsorship from this rag of a magazine.

Where's the censorship?? Businesses make choices every day about what to sell or not sell, for whatever reasons, as is their right. If you don't like their decision, don't shop there if you don't want to, as is your right. I shop where I shop for convenience, familiarity, availability of the products we want to buy. I won't stop shopping at Target for pulling Paula Deen's products, as ridiculous as I think it was, because I like Target, it's nearby, we use that pharmacy, they sell what I want to buy. (Note...Paula Deen's products are very marked down, if you're looking.)

I occasionally, if I notice something in the flyer (if I even bother reading it), stop in to CVS, and if they had carried this issue of Rolling Stone (as is their right), since I don't like CVS anyway (or Walgreens...but they do have great Disney decor during holidays ), I might very well have decided not to shop there anymore, ever (as is my right). Personally, I respect and agree with their decision not to sell this issue.

There is NO CENSORSHIP in CVS's decision not to carry this issue of Rolling Stone, anymore than it was censorship when they stopped carrying MoroccanOil...unless of course someone wants to claim they have an issue with Moroccans.

That's not censorship.
That's a company making a corporate decision not to do something.
I don't have a problem with it.

The decision by RS to put that madman on their cover is abhorrent. I think it's a lame-brained idea that SOMEONE in charge should have had the good sense to say "I don't THINK so!!"

However, I get really nervous when a corporation decides for me what products are suitable for my consumption---especially reading material. I'm a smart girl--I can figure this out for myself. Big brother doesn't need to be concerned for my mental welfare.

I'm all for people (corporations, small business and individuals) to voice their disgust at the cover. RS needs to know.

I think it's disgusting that the decision of these stores to not carry a magazine that put a killer front and center on the cover like he's some rock star makes some of you not want to shop there anymore, or that it makes you want to buy the magazine even more now.

That is simply not an accurate understanding of the definition of censorship, nor are censorship and personal/corporate choice mutually exclusive. Censorship is the suppression of public communication that is deemed objectionable by a body. You are confusing censorship with the first amendment right to free speech. The first amendment does only apply to the government, meaning that the government cannot arbitrarily restrict free speech, but any organization can censor speech or communications, and the decision by these corporations is the very definition of it.

That having been said, I don't object to their decision to not carry Rolling Stone magazine and I agree that it was needlessly incendiary to use that photo on the cover.

Exactly.

RS should be ashamed of their "journalism."

There is no censorship these companies aren't deciding what is right and what is wrong for someone to read they are making a decision not to support a magazine that is trying to turn a terrrorist into a Martyr, you can get the magazine elsewhere.

If it was an article glorifying him, I'd be pretty upset. But an article trying to understand WHY... I'd probably want those answers, too.

Except for the fact that TIME did not call Osama Bin Laden a "popular boy" with a "bright future." RS's article paints Tsarnaev as a victim of circumstance, which is not something I'm okay with. Most other Bostonians seem to agree with me that this magazine cover was in extremely poor taste. I will be sure to patronize CVS and Walgreens more often in the future.

But it's not a news magazine. It's Rolling Stone. Not where many go to get their world news.

"THE BOMBER How a Popular, Promising Student Was Failed by his Family, Fell Into Radical Islam and Became a Monster."

is what it says, I don't see the problem with that description. It's clearly an opinion piece and that as far as I know is still allowed in this country.
