Officer shot in Boston marathon showdown condemns Rolling Stone cover

BOSTON (AP) — The transit police officer who was shot during a showdown with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects says he hopes the Rolling Stone cover story on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) doesn’t glorify him in readers’ eyes.

Officer Richard Donohue told NBC’s “Today” show Thursday that he was surprised at the cover of the magazine’s Aug. 1 edition. The close-up of Tsarnaev looks more like one of the rock stars that usually grace the magazine’s cover.

Donohue criticized Rolling Stone’s cover choice. In his words: “They could’ve picked anybody else. There’s a number of people they could have picked for an arts and entertainment magazine than an alleged bomber.”

Rolling Stone editors said in a statement that the story falls within the traditions of journalism and the magazine’s commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage.
