The Chinese government is fighting back against Google’s comments yesterday, saying they would no longer filter out information on their website.
“The Chinese government administers the Internet according to law and we have explicit stipulations over what content can be spread on the Internet,” said Jiang Yu, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman.
Huang Jing, a professor from the National University of Singapore said in an interview with Bloomberg News, “The Chinese government may want to give Google’s high- profile move the cold shoulder. Given the reason Google cited in its announcement — that Google.cn can no longer put up with Beijing’s censorship — the CCP leaders are afraid that it could set a dangerous political precedent should they compromise on this one.”
The China/Google War isn’t expected to grow much, and Google has said they are ready to shut down their offices in China, if need be.
