Shock: Chinese To Censor Internet During Olympics

The IOC stands tall yet again

BEIJING: The Chinese government confirmed Wednesday what journalists arriving at the lavishly outfitted media center here had suspected: Contrary to previous assurances by Olympic and government officials, the Internet would be censored during the upcoming games.
…On Wednesday – two weeks after its most recent proclamation of an uncensored Internet during the Summer Games – the International Olympic Committee quietly agreed to some of the limitations, according to Kevan Gosper, chairman of the IOC press commission, Reuters reported.

“Roll over and play dead” is their new motto.

    If the IOC tried to cancel the games over this, then they’d have to give back all that bribe money.

    Sometimes, it’s not even the websites one would expect.

  3. Richard E. Hennessey says:

    How do we contact the IOC to protest their caving in? Their contact information is not very obvious on their website?

  4. I think it’s more like BEND-over and play dead.
