People are acting like the Boston Bomber Rolling Stone cover is the first time print media has ever had a “controversial” cover.

-Newsweek had extensive coverage of WWII, and had many Axis-centered covers. Y'all still bought issues.

-Kanye as Jesus on Rolling Stone ring a bell? That was 7 years ago. Y'all still bought issues.

-Seeing as ‘Merica hates gays, you’d think they wouldn’t support Time magazine after Ellen came out to them… '97. Remember 58 years earlier? No? Here ya go:

-Time Magazine had HITLER as 'Man of the Year’ in 1939. Again, pretty sure they’ve got a solid customer base after all these years.

-Seeing as 'Merica “hates” anything not white: October 1971, the first African-American woman, Jennifer Jackson, is on the cover of Playboy. UR 'BATIN’.

-America loves their religion, and people got pissed at WIRED when they put the crown of thorns around the Apple logo. WIRED still exists, and even the Almighty Westboro use smartphones.

Vogue, Vanity Fair, Esquire, and so many others have done this over the years, and will continue to do so.

I guess the point I’m trying to make is: –Shut.The.Actual.Fuck.Up.– This is nothing new.
