A lot of the content on Guardian America is taken from Guardian Unlimited and The Guardian, although some content is produced for Guardian America.
Until May 2011 the editor of Guardian America was Michael Tomasky.
Guardian America was created in October 2007 and was highly publicised at the time of its launch on the Guardian Unlimited website. The response from Guardian Unlimited users at the time of Guardian America's creation was mixed, reflecting concern about possible changes.
On July 23 the Guardian Media Group announced that Caroline Little, the former chief executive and publisher of WashingtonPost.Newsweek Interactive, would join the Guardian News & Media America operation in the role of special adviser for its expansion in the United States. She will also join the board of ContentNext (website), the US-based digital business news publisher that owns PaidContent.org (website), acquired by GNM earlier in July.
Political stance 
Guardian News and Media's publications/websites (including Guardian America) have a left of centre political stance - ranging from centre-ground liberal to left-wing socialist in some comment parts of the site.
Guardian America is only available online, although Guardian Weekly, an international version of The Guardian is available in print and online.
Guardian America is controlled by Guardian News and Media (GNM). GNM is controlled by Guardian Media Group (GMG), which is controlled by the Scott Trust, a charitable organisation which aims to ensure the editorial independence of the publications and Web Sites of GMG.
Other international versions of the Guardian 
Guardian Weekly 
Guardian Weekly is similar to Guardian America in that it is not UK focused, although Guardian Weekly provides a more international focus, and is only updated weekly (Guardian America carries breaking news).
Guardian Abroad 
Guardian Abroad is designed to provide information (not news) to British expatriates. It is, therefore, very different from Guardian Weekly and, even more so, Guardian America.
America on Comment is Free 
Comment is Free (CiF) is the comment part of the Guardian and is named after a quote by veteran Guardian editor CP Scott: "Comment is free, but facts are sacred". It is a site where Guardian writers publish a comment article then users respond, in the manner of blogs. This is different from Guardian talk, where the discussions are started by Guardian Unlimited users.
