Conservative author and commentator Michelle Malkin blasted the new Rolling Stone magazine cover featuring suspected Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on Fox News Wednesday.

Malkin suggested that the magazine change its name to “Tiger Beat for Terrorists,” referring to the celebrity news magazine marketed to young girls.

“I really just want to throw up, especially — not just looking at the cover, but the actual article itself,” she said, pointing out that the article tries to humanize Tsarnaev – the accused terrorist who help set off bombs at the Boston Marathon.

“After consuming the entire article, all I came to the conclusion of is that the author as well as these editors are as muddle headed as ever about our war with Islam and really this just serves the purposes of Al Qaeda propagandists,” Malkin said.

Malkin also mocked Rolling Stone editors for citing Tsarnaev’s youth as a reason to “examine the complexities” of his story.

“In other words, American youth, this accused Boston Bomber who’s accused of using pressure cookers that ended up killing many people including an 8-year-old boy, is just like you!” she said incredulously.
