Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone is a bi-weekly magazine that primarily publishes stories about the music industry, but it also reports on more serious topics with a liberal bias. Founded in San Francisco in 1967, the magazine has undergone changes in focus and image ever since.

In June 2022, Rolling Stone published numerous pro-abortion articles after the reversal of Roe v. Wade, without publishing pro-life articles to balance them.

Its reporting on politics is considered by conservatives to be extraordinarily one-sided. In its list of the ten worst congressmen, nine out of ten were Republican.[1]

Additional examples of Rolling Stone work include:

  • a story promoting sensational -- but demonstrably false -- anti-ivermectin assertions about an emergency room being filled with victims of the medication. Rolling Stone ran a correction but did not correct its misleading headline.[2]
  • a cover mocking President George W. Bush with a dunce cap in the corner with an inside article by a professor claiming that Bush has a "combination of impotence, laziness and ineptitude for the job"[3]
  • an article by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. insisting that Bush stole the election of 2004,[4] which the former President Bill Clinton then described as "compelling"
  • a pre-election article in 2004 urging voters to cast their ballots for John Kerry.
  • a cover with the Boston Marothon Bombing-terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev[5]

The magazine has employed a number of notable correspondents, including the liberal, drug-abusing, and Anti-Christian Hunter S. Thompson, and the late libertarian P.J.O'Rourke.

Al Gore and Bill Clinton continued to be featured frequently in Rolling Stone, long after their relevancy passed.

Rolling Stone claimed in a February 2023 article that authoritarian left-wing "cancel culture" is "good for democracy",[6] despite this being a tool of various totalitarian regimes such as Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
