Backlash After Magazine Features Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect

(CBS NEWS) – The magazine Rolling Stone has triggered a firestorm with its new cover featuring Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The August issue of the music mag features a story and photo of Tsarnaev and is titled: “The Bomber: How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster.”

The magazine says the story was drawn from interviews with Tsarnaev’s friends, teachers, neighbors and law enforcement officials. According to Rolling Stone, the story, written by contributing editor Janet Reitman, delivers “a riveting and heartbreaking account of how a charming kid with a bright future became a monster.”

But the story has triggered a flurry of negative comments on Rolling Stone’s Facebook page. One commenter accused the magazine of “glamorizing terrorism” and another called it a “slap in the face to the great city of Boston.”
