GUARDIAN AMERICA LAUNCHED
The Guardian has launched its US website, Guardian America.
The site kicked off with an exclusive interview with Hilary Clinton.
Edited by former American Prospect journo Michael Tomasky, he said:
The Guardian's already-huge US audience shows that they must be doing something right. What we'll try to do is to bring those American readers the best and most relevant of what London produces every day and combine it with political and cultural coverage of the states that is more geared toward a US audience's interests but staying faithful to the Guardian sensibilityThe site has eight members of editorial staff in Washington, including three people from the Guardian or Guardian Unlimited. Apparently the Guardian's stated strategic aim has been to become the "world's leading liberal voice".
