Dzhokhar Magazine Cover Sold Well

The controversy over Rolling Stone’s “Boston Bomber” issue seems to have helped sales, despite several stores boycotting the magazine. The cover featured a self-shot photo of Dzhokar Tsarnaev that some said glamorized the suspected bomber, despite the same image being used on the front page of The New York Times and elsewhere. Responding to the outrage, CVS and other stores pulled the issue from their newstands, but retail sales of the issue still jumped 102 percent over average per-issue sales for the past year.
