Rolling Stone

This is an old revision of this page, as edited by Aschlafly (Talk | contribs) at 18:01, September 5, 2021. It may differ significantly from current revision.

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.

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 libertarian, Christian, drug-abusing P.J.O'Rourke.

Al Gore and Bill Clinton continue to be featured frequently in Rolling Stone.
