Jeff Ritter http://wesa.fm en Rolling Stone Cover Controversy http://wesa.fm/post/rolling-stone-cover-controversy <p>One of this week’s leading media stories is the controversy surrounding the August issue of Rolling Stone magazine.

The decision has sparked outrage across the country and started a backlash against Rolling Stone.
