Posted: Updated:

 

"Rolling Stone" magazine is feeling the fallout after using a cover photo of the surviving suspect of the Boston marathon bombings.

The picture comes with a picture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with a headline stating "The Bomber."

The magazine profiles the 19-year-old's seemingly normal life.

Rolling Stone says the story quote "falls within the tradition of journalism and (our) long standing commitment to serious and thorough coverage..." and says it feels deep sympathy for the victims of the bombing.

What do you think of the magazine's decision to run the story?
