Now Google discovers a backbone?

January 14, 2010


Google vice-president David Drummond …  said Google might have to pull all of its operations out of China because “we simply cannot continue to operate a filtered or censored search engine.”   (National Post, 1/13/10)

Is this because Google is anti-censorship?  Does Google believe in free speech?  Oh, no.  Google has been censoring web access from China all along.  The difference now is that Google e-mail accounts in China have been hacked and the article at least hints that the government may be doing it to spy on human rights dissidents.

I don’t have a lot of trust in Google.
