House Members Criticize Internet Companies for Practices in China
Google, Yahoo, Cisco and Microsoft came under attack from Congressmen who believe they're keeping information from the Chinese people at the behest of the Chinese government. I tend to agree with the Congressmen, but I also think there's something to be said for the idea that some Google in China is better than no Google in China. (And let's face it, this is all about Google. The others were brought in just so it wouldn't look like Google was getting picked on.) If you're a Chinese dissident and you want access to information about the crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in 1989, you're probably still more likely to get that information even with the filtered Google than you would have been with no Google at all.
