Newsweek doesn't have any vested interest in promoting American viewpoints. Like most media, it's concerned with circulation and in the international market, it will sell more mags with anti-American story than with a pro-American story. Being anti-American is a cheap and easy way for foreigners to feel morally superior while they slide into fascism or demographic oblivion.
The enormous rise of a global middle class is pretty much purely following some American values and strategies.

I canceled my subscription early in the Iraq war coverage they were doing.
The magazine just lurched to the left and went staggering merrily off.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
