Yahoo!, Google, Called to Capitol Hill

Helping Big Brother?

Like many, I find it disturbing that Google and Yahoo!, among others, have plunged headlong into the Chinese market accepting censorship controls imposed by the Chinese government. At some level, I can sort of understand it. I don't however, understand Yahoo!'s decision to divulge the identity of a pro-democracy blogger who, thanks to Yahoo! is serving an eight year jail sentence. Now Congress has called them up to explain all this.

Thank goodness our government would never pressure internet companies to spy on us...

I'm sure that members of Congress will ask tough questions and won't grandstand or anything...sigh.
