Term describing people in the media obsessed with contemporary pop culture (esp. American pop culture), regarding the present time to be better than the past. Derives from 'Maoist', which indicates a stalinistic devotion to modern culture and almost evangelical pushing of aspects of said culture.
Mark Lawson of the Late Review and journalist Ben Thompson would be regarded as 'Chairman Nao's'!
