Google Returns To Being Evil

It looks like google’s “bold stance” didn’t last very long.

From ccn.com:

Within hours of Google’s announcement that it was no longer willing to self-censor in China, Google.cn was retrieving results for sensitive topics including the 1989 crackdown at Tiananmen Square, the Dalai Lama and the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement.

Previously, a search for “Tiananmen” would only return images of the square itself.

Pages appeared to fluctuate between uncensored and somewhat censored throughout Wednesday and, by Thursday, government censorship of Google seemed to have been restored, with terms such as “Tiananmen Square” returning limited results.
