Why Do Google Eat Food They Don’t Like?

Reuters quotes China Business Times, who complains that is telling its users when results are censored:

“Does a business operating in China need to constantly tell customers that it’s abiding by the laws of the land?” it said, adding that Google had “incited” a debate about censorship.

The paper likened Google to “an uninvited guest” telling a dinner host “the dishes don’t suit his taste, but he’s willing to eat them as a show of respect to the host”.

How ironic that Google is now attacked from two sides – those who think they do too little to oppose censorship, and those who think they do too much. (By the way, I don’t think oppressing freedom of speech is a Chinese law, as the China Business Times, and Google in their result pages, suggest.)
