Cultural Imperialism

Oh this is going to be fun – The Guardian are to launch an American edition.

Actually it is going to be a weekly news magazine and American journalist Michael Wolf reckons there is a market for it: The Fox-led conservative fatwa;or merely its clever marketing ploy;against liberal media has largely purged the slightest liberal inclination from the media, meaning there’s a yawning market hole.

Between the New York Times and liberal trade magazines like The New Republic and The Nation, there’s nothing. It’s an open field. The very down-and-out-ness of left-leaning media, together with the great antipathy to smarties in America, means a blissful business condition of absolutely no competition at all.

Funny the Guardian haven’t bothered to report this news yet though?
