Unlike, OBVIOUSLY, many others, I actually read the story about the Boston bomber in your magazine. Personally I think it's important to show him as the normal, regular looking dude he appeared to be so we all know to stay aware and be alert because of potential wolves in sheep clothing so I guess that's why it made sense to me. The boogie man doesn't often look evil.
I'd think more people would feel that way and am honestly confused to find they don't. I guess it's just as simple as realizing that people don't read anymore. They match a soundbite to a visual and VIOLA! Outrage. Most of the time the soundbites are from people who didn't read as well or from people who were PAID to read it and CRAFT the soundbites which would deflect from the REAL STORY.
Just like the Paula Deen fiasco. Folks saying she made a mistake years ago by using that word...obviously didn't read the full transcript of her deposition. Cuz yeah...there was far more going on than her using a bad word years ago.
"Thank you for shopping at Costco. I love you."
What's your take on this?
