Who can forget that moment so -- an awful and now others new outrage.
After the bombing of the Boston Marathon as an iconic US magazine.
Seems to glorify one of the man has now accused of killing those four Americans -- injuring more than 200 others.
The -- of -- Karzai and I and is now plastered on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine is from coast to coast.
In just a short while ago we heard that one major store chain.
Has now refused to carry this -- copy Trace Gallagher has more on this for us in ally Trace.
And that major chain Martha is CVS drugstores saying that they will not carry this month's issue of Rolling Stone out of respect to the victims.
Of the Boston bombings literally look what has the people so upset -- baffled over this.
Is the picture and the -- out more specific of the picture take a look at this because you can see.
That it looks very much like a Bob Dylan picture or Jim Morrison on the right and the question many are now asking is why the magazine is making him look.
Like a teen heartthrob instead of a terrorist and alleged killer.
And some critics point out that Rolling Stone is doing exactly what many terrorists hope which is to -- -- dangerous message to any of his twisted supporters and you are sorry Ed does have in fact supporters who believe that he is innocent.
Rolling Stone says the article is quoting a riveting and heart breaking account.
Of -- a charming kid.
-- -- bright future became a monster people in Boston say.
If Rolling Stone wanted to heart breaking count they should have put a victim on the cover and told the stories of how this.
Hurt their families.
This has created a firestorm on line and has not been kinda Rolling Stone one saying quoting here writing a story about your heart is one thing.
Putting the glam shot of him on the cover was totally irresponsible and -- saying you are giving horrible people power why not show the good people who help that day who deserve to be recognized.
And the people of Boston are also weighing it was.
I don't approve it because is not -- it.
Who he -- at least two we think he has.
You know if they want to become famous.
If they want to make the cover of a national magazine no problem kill somebody.
And some say the Rolling Stone only had a limited number of pictures to use which is why this picture also appeared in other publications.
Others saying totally unacceptable.
With more on this let's bring in -- -- journalist and Fox News contributor.
Lisa dot Atari and Lisa I just keep going back you know when you're -- that doctor -- song you know cover of the Rolling Stone.
Get my picture on the cover buy five copies my mother it really is and it's it's a big deal for these rock stars to be on the cover of Rolling Stone and -- you put that picture up again.
Of Jim Morrison Bob Dylan.
And -- hearts aren't yet it really is uncanny -- lay out of these three pictures because.
It is almost identical in the way it's presented.
Right and that's absolutely that the awful and insensitive message that's being portrayed here is that you can't have a musical hit or -- terrorist hit and you'll be on the cover.
Rolling -- to the -- as you -- a very coveted.
Position and this is not.
A conservative or a liberal issue it's an American issue -- this was a very.
Un American move by Rolling Stone magazine and I'm not a question that journalistic.
Value your integrity of the article -- the journalists who did the interview because this might be very important -- to -- to understand.
How he was radicalized and how we can prevent you know future young people from being radicalized as he -- -- to portray him like this.
On the cover what kind of message is that -- and you know this goes -- hits at the heart and it goes contradicts exactly the Obama administration's.
Do you on terrorism in all -- Obama has said many times.
The war on terror is over Osama bin Laden was captured and if that's the case and we're calling these recent terrorist.
Lone wolves or you know independent radicalized individuals.
Well then it's our responsibility therefore to you know monitor media social media are universities.
And to prevent future young people like this young man from becoming radicalized.
We brought that up -- having you know the mideast you've covered the area and -- and you know journalism so we're not saying that Rolling Stone this -- not important because they've done some very good investigative journalism.
In the past and I have read the article but this might be.
As well you know a very enlightening article about this about this young man.
But the question is is that taste and how you lay it out and it's got people outraged with good purpose and it really goes to the heart of what you're saying is there are people who will say that this is exactly what terrorists want they want this kind of publicity so that they can.
Create more -- And that's exactly the point here is exactly the way that it's being portrayed which is the issue.
And you know in the aftermath of 9/11 if you you look back over a decade ago.
In this country had an awakening in an understanding that we have a new ideological threat that's on our soil.
And you know.
People became aware people wanted to know more but we have since gone very far from that an almost gone too far from that -- almost becoming.
You over compensating and and for fear of being Islam -- the political correctness of leading up to put a terrorist on the cover of a national magazine like this.
Lisa I gotta go.
I gotta go to listen you made good points there's going to be a lot more followed because this -- adapt our committees -- thank you so much pleasure.
