The slow pace of jury selection will push back the timeline in Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mass murder trial. His lawyers filed a third motion to move the trial out of Boston to ensure “indifferent jurors.”

The cover has outraged many who see it as glorifying a terrorist. But what does the feature story reveal?
“The survivors of the Boston attacks deserve Rolling Stone cover stories, though I no longer feel that Rolling Stone deserves them.”

And a lot of people aren’t happy about it. “Boston bomber as rock star.”
