More editorial bias in the trades (part 1)

What's with Publishers Weekly's apparent fetish with Akashic Books? PW Daily's Felicia Pride writes up an infomercial about plans of the Brooklyn indie (whose motto is "reverse-gentrification of the literary world") to start a "street fiction imprint." According to Pride:

Akashic publisher Johnny Temple said the imprint will start slowly, eventually releasing two books a year.

So why does PW want to alert us all to an imprint whose goals is publishing two books a year about "street fiction." I don't suppose there was any sort of editorial bias in that story selection...
