China Widens Crackdown on "Vulgar" American Web Sites

Post by QueenBee on Sat Jan 10, 2009 12:37 pm


China has widened an Internet crackdown on "vulgar" content to target 14 new sites, including Microsofts's MSM, and chided fellow American giant Google for not doing enough to clean up. Cleaning

China's ruling Communist Party is wary of threats to its grip on informaiton and has conducted numeous censorship efforts targeting pornography, political criticism and web scams, but officials flagged tougher steps this time.

While I agree that many sites do need a good cleaning, but to include political criticism is another matter. China may not allow Freedom of Speech in this country, but it is a cherised right that we have here in the United States.

Will it be a matter of time before all of us that have forums, blogs or websites and those that reply to such will have to adhere to rules dictated by China? What is your take on this?
