Newsweek is a weekly news magazine published in New York City and distributed throughout the United States. It is the second-largest weekly magazine in the U.S., having played second fiddle to Time magazine during its entire career.

Originally called "News-Week" it was founded by Thomas J.C. Martyn on February 17, 1933. That issue featured seven photographs from the week's news on the cover, but over time it has developed the spectrum of news-magazine material, from breaking stories to analysis to reviews and commentary. The magazine was bought by The Washington Post Company[?] in 1961.

As of 2003, worldwide circulation is more than 4 million, including 3.1 million in the U.S. It also publishes editions in Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Arabic, as well as an English language Newsweek International.

Based in New York City, it had 22 bureaus as of 2003: 9 in the U.S., as well as bureaus in Beijing, Capetown, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Jerusalem, London, Mexico City, Moscow, Paris, and Tokyo.
