Google and censorship

There has been a lot noise over Google's recent move to censor content on its chinese site. I really don't want to get into all that, but these screen captures say everything that needs to be said. The first is an image search on "Tiananmen Square" done on google.com, the second the same search on the chinese site. Note the lack of tanks on the second screen capture...


Search on google.com


Search on google.cn

Update: More from the International Herald Tribune...
