Wanna See My Smiling Face

Steve Kelley, 7/18/13:
You've got two choices here today:

1) Magazines are uniquely important in American culture, which is why the approximately sixty zillion hours of Boston Bomber coverage on TV and thousands of pictures of him plastered across newspapers for months are acceptable, but one magazine cover that calls him a "Monster" is horrible.

2) The media have never covered any mass murderers before -- why, the public doesn't even know the names of previous mass killers like Dillinger, Manson, and Bundy, do they?
