Newsweek has damaged the US’ image?!?
I thought it was the Bush Administration. I was wrong? You mean it’s a weekly journal’s fault? That’s why they hate us? I’m so relieved. I thought it was the whole Christian cowboy talking about a crusade that made Muslims upset.

This makes everything so much easier. I no longer have to tell people from other countries that I’m Canadian? I can just tell them that I don’t subscribe to Newsweek.
I don’t support a magazine that single-handedly RUINED my country’s image.
