Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A problem is that if you're in the U.S. and you want to read a news magazine, the Economist does a pretty good job of covering the international news scene. There is an obvious editorial bias, but the traditional American news magazines (Time, Newsweek, etc.) long ago changed their emphasis to coverage of Hollywood celebrities--and are now completely useless as sources of international coverage.

Similarly, if you want to read about American business, the Wall Street Journal is the best source of detailed information, and for international finance, the Financial Times.

All three of these are widely available here in bookstores and by subscription.

What daily and weekly newspapers would be more appropriate for an American to read, if the goal is to get international news and financial coverage, and a non-right-wing editorial stance, and local availability?

Their reputation was deserved. It is thus all the more important to point out today the bias that has crept up (fairly recently) in their coverage, to discount some of their editorialising accordingly.

They're still good for news, but they're no longer the "neutral" source they could claim to be to a much larger extent in the past.
