Review: The Week (magazine)

I used to read Time, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal regularly, but this reading has largely been replaced by a single magazine, The Week, which bills itself as “All you need to know about everything that matters.”

Rather than hire a legion of reporters to cover news around the world, The Week quotes news articles, columns, and editorials from US and international media, toeing the copyright line (or maybe they pay a royalty? I question that). The Week also covers fun and frivolous news in the Only in America section.

In case you have not studied geography since the fifth grade, articles are written surrounding a map of the world, with a line pointing to where the action took place.n

If you are paying for several news sources, consider The Week to cut down the time you spend reading the news and also to pay less in subscription fees. I heard a rumor that it is possible to get The Week for a year for only $20, but I have not been able to get this deal.
