very interesting article and especially the comments on the article underneath it as well.

"In short, Rolling Stone chose that picture not to compliment the story (which other photos could have done), not out of journalistic integrity, but out of simple profit-maximizing, as their 20% profit increase might suggest. Is that a crime? No, but its nothing to be proud of either. "

If the pic had been used by other outlets, as pointed out by the article, what did Rolling Stone do wrong? Put an image on the cover that was secondary and previously used? Pick a pic that showed too much sympathy for a person they seemingly, rightfully excoriated in title and article?
