Retailers Vow Not to Sell Rolling Stone's ‘Boston Bomber’ Issue
At least five retailers with deep ties to New England will not sell the Rolling Stone magazine featuring an unsmiling, scruffy Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its cover. The issue — which hits newsstands Friday — depicts Tsarnaev above a boldface headline, "The Bomber." The story, which features interviews from childhood friends, teachers and law enforcement agents, promises to reveal how a "popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster." Several notable retailers, including CVS and Walgreens, have decided not to carry the issue in their stores.
