Free Speech and Google or China? A Toss Up

freespeechSo in terms of actually killing and imprisoning people, China does come out on top. If that’s the scale you use. However, when you are talking about free speech, I’d say that both China and Google have a lot of ‘splaining to do.

Google is so far deep into the pockets of this administration, that they have been shown to censor or degrade in the search results any anti-Obama discussion or videos posted to YouTube (one of their companies). Plus even though their motto is “Don’t Be Evil”, they still have a database tracking your every move. And when their CEO comes out and actually says “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.”

So you are telling me that privacy is over in the Google Era?

Google Inc. is enjoying an avalanche of good will because of its threat to leave China over e-mail hacking attacks against dissidents.

Does the Internet giant deserve the praise?
