This might be old news to some of you, but here goes…

Let’s do a google image search for “Tiananmen Square” on both google.com and google.cn (Google China):

Normal google.com search

Google.cn search

Do you see anything funny about that? Notice the google.cn results show absolutely nothing related to the Tiananmen Square massacre.

So, what’s really going on here? Who is in charge of google.cn? Is Google actually complicit in this censorship or, considering they might have licensed the technology over to Chinese owners, maybe they have no control over the issue. I could not find much info on this…Comments?
