DARTMOUTH, MA - Add the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth and its host community to those upset at Rolling Stone magazine's cover story on the Boston Marathon bombing suspect.
Staff and students are upset at the magazine's portrayal of the university as a "middling school" with "an utter lack of character."
Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a student at UMass-Dartmouth.
Chancellor Divina Grossman tells The Standard-Times (http://bit.ly/13SFKG3 ) in a statement that the magazine sensationalized the bad and disparaged the good. She says it's obvious the writer did not spend much time in the area.
The article also says the town of Dartmouth is "a working-class community with virtually nothing to boast of except for a rather sad mall and a striking number of fast-food joints."
Selectman John George Jr. called the description "ridiculous."
