One year after the Boston Marathon bombing, The Boston Herald's Howie Carr excoriated a story in The New York Times that he says painted a sympathetic picture of one of the suspected perpetrators of the attack and his isolated imprisonment as he awaits trial.

"I'm just appalled by it," Carr told John Bachman and J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV. Carr said the Times' piece is part of a larger liberal media tendency to portray Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as a sympathetic figure, even as a sex symbol, as many argued that Rolling Stone magazine did when it put the suspected terrorist on its August 2013 cover.

Story continues below video.



The Times story referenced letters of sympathy and affection that Tsarnaev gets in prison, some from female admirers.

"I mean, come on, why are we covering up for this guy? I don't get it," Carr said. "Sometimes I think it's just because he's cute. Do the editors of Rolling Stone or Boston Globe and The New York Times think, do they have, like, a crush on this guy?"
