In order to create a fair world information order, developed and developing countries have been on the battle for several decades. This paper analyzes the phenomenon of culture imperialism in the modern world through three cases—American TV series, Gangnam Style and report on "China's arrogance", so as to figure out its causes, including abundant financial support and market-oriented production. With the rapid development of Internet, culture imperialism, to some extent, has been formed a powerful tide around the world. To counter this trend, China, as one of developing countries, must seize every chance to speak up with an appropriate form and way, tally culture products with the global trend, earmark more investments to promotion.
