Default My Magazine in English?

Even though I live in Panama, I am fully bilingual and prefer to use my device in US English. The "My Magazine" app, however, for some reason inexplicable, retrieves all news stories in Spanish despite the fact that my default language is set to English and that I have set the app preferences in "My Magazine" to retrieve stories from the United States.

Is there any way to force the "My Magazine" app to actually obey the settings of the system? I assume it just reads my IP and pushes the feed based on that.

Anyone have any ideas?

This I think is correct. As it is local/regional news based it'll push in the local language. There could be a way to hack the settings of it somehow or force an IP proxy.. but that's a lot of work for one app and way out of most peoples grasp lol
