Google Hits Glitches Over Video Site, China – Yuki Noguchi

From The Washington Posrt:

After a run-up in stock price, good press and public accolades, Inc. hit a rough patch this week.The popular Internet company acknowledged a design flaw in its recently launched video service and released a version of its search engine in China that, at the behest of the Chinese government, filtered out some of the results on politically sensitive search terms such as "democracy" and "Taiwanese independence." That move drew charges that the company compromised its freedom-of-information ethics and tarnished its vaunted "Don't be evil" credo.
