Will Google Stop Censoring Search Results in China per its Pledge?


GoogleMonitor.com Announces Google China Censorship Pledge Accountability Ticker


WASHINGTONGoogleMonitor.com has installed a ticker on its homepage at www.GoogleMonitor.com to hold Google accountable to its high-profile pledge on January 12, 2010: We have decided we are no longer willing to continue censoring our results on Google.cn…http://googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com/2010/01/new-approach-to-china.html 


It is now been 41 days and counting since Google made its China censorship pledge. That is significantly beyond the “few weeks” deadline Google gave the Chinese to effectively accede to Google’s demands to “operate an unfiltered search engine… in China.


When will Google live up to its word and brand commitment and stop censoring search results in China? asked Scott Cleland, Publisher of GoogleMonitor.com.  “U.S. investigators reportedly have determined that the cyber attacks on Google and others originated in China, and Google’s tactic of publicly shaming the Chinese Government into changing their censorship laws appears to have failed.”  Cleland added.


GoogleMonitor.com is dedicated to making Google more transparent and accountable. One of the goals of this watchdog site is to: “shine a bright light on what Google seeks to hide,” which includes its “censorship of search results.”
