Nicholas Kristof on the relative sins (sub. req.) of Yahoo and Google in sucking up to the Chinese:
[I]t’s a mistake to think of all the American companies as equal sinners, for Google appears to have done nothing wrong at all….
Yahoo sold its soul and is a national disgrace. It is still dissembling, and nobody should touch Yahoo until it provides financially for the families of the three men it helped lock up and establishes annual fellowships in their names to bring Web journalists to America on study programs.
It seems pretty clear that everyone is beating up on Google because it’s the 800-pound gorilla, and because it’s “Don’t Be Evil” motto makes it such a ripe target.
