Tsarnaev makes the cover of Rolling Stone; cable news moguls demand suppression of free press

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will appear on the cover of the August 3 issue of Rolling Stone. Here’s the reaction as delivered this morning by Mainstream Media:

“How dare Rolling Stone glorify this evil Muslim demon? Anyone who sympathizes with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev or God forbid, dares to question his guilt, must be a shallow groupie who is only attracted to that rock star-handsome face. MY GOD. HOW CAN WE STOP THIS MAGAZINE FROM BEING PUBLISHED?”

If the government is now going to suppress free journalistic inquiry, AND throw away the “innocent until proven guilty” principle, I’m thinking I might as well move to Egypt or Saudi Arabia or somewhere. Obviously there is no more free journalistic inquiry on Cable News, there is only opinion-mongering. I am beginning to feel truly frightened for the future of this country.
