Rolling Stone's Dzhokhar Cover


The cover of Rolling Stone's August issue

This is the cover of the August issue of Rolling Stone, set to hit newsstands soon. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the Internet will likely have a few thoughts on the editorial decision to give the "Free Jahar" crowd something to pin up on their bedroom walls. (As a man who's had to art an untold number of Tsarnaev-related posts with only a handful of images to choose from, I'll grant the editors didn't have a whole lot of options to accompany Janet Reitman's report on the "life and times of Boston bomber Jahar Tsarnaev." That said, it's pretty clear the masthead knew what they were doing when they settled on this one.)
