Censor this

Two contrasting articles on the policing of China's internet.

Frontpage magazine interviews author Ethan Gutmann, who wrote Losing the New China: a Story of American Commerce, Desire and Betrayal. Gutmann tells us why he was right all along and how evil all the various IT companies doing business with China's government are (it's certainly not Philip Morris after the newly announced ban on new cigarette factories in the world's tar stick capital).

The other, more interesting, article is a translation by ESWN of a day in the life of a Chinese internet policewoman.

Compare and contrast the reality and the bombast.
