Google's Censorship in China

Please do your part in the global fight against censorship. Let them know that youíre fightiní mad.

Below is an eletter I sent to Google in response to a news article I read on CNN (http://money.cnn.com/2006/01/25/news/international/google_china.reut/index.htm?cnn=yes) that says, in part, î[Google] will block politically sensitive terms on its new China site.

Gentlemen,

The following quotation is from your web site:

"We're committed to providing thorough and unbiased search results for our users; therefore, we cannot participate in the practice of censorship." (Found at http://www.google.com/webmasters/remove.html.)

But, of course, that doesn't apply to China, does it?

Please tell me: How hypocritical can Google become?
