Google's launch of a new, self-censored search engine in China is a "black day" for freedom of expression, a leading international media watchdog says.
I saw a feature about censorship in China on BBC's only technology TV programme, previously called "Click Online" but recently changed to just "Click". They showed how many websites we would consider fine to browse are considered incorrect or unlawful by the Chinese authorities. For instance, the BBC News site simply isn't accessible from China.
Crazy, huh? It's wrong to be judgemental but with 1.3 billion people living there, you might've expected a few to revolt and demand censorship to be stopped. Then again, with 1.3 billion people there's probably such a variety they find no need to discover much about the 'banned topics'. What do you think?
