George here.

Alright, by now you've likely seen that Rolling Stone cover or at the very least heard the noise of debate around it.

Our office got heated as we worked our way through the subject.

The debate ranged from Rolling Stone returning to form as a political firestarter to the glamourization of a suspect accused of a heinous act.

One thing that is universally agreed upon is that the image of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the two men accused in the April bombing of the Boston Marathon leaves a hell of a mark.

I think Rolling Stone and media in general should be starting conversations like this...

What do you think?
