Welcome To The Bitchery

list of companies refusing to sell the issue of Rolling Stone with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover.

I was just on the chain's website looking for something, and I noticed there was an announcement regarding the issue:

"Hy-Vee has received many questions and complaints from customers regarding the current issue of Rolling Stone magazine, which features a cover photo of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect. In general, the decision whether or not to carry a particular publication rests with each individual store; however, in response to feedback from our customers, we have asked all our stores to refrain from displaying or selling the issue of Rolling Stone in question."


In case you've never heard of this chain, it's pretty common in the mid-Midwest, especially in smaller towns. At any rate, whatever your feelings about the RS cover, it will be interesting to see how many more companies decide not to sell the magazine.
