Yahoo Bows Lowest to China

From The Register:

"Yahoo! restricts access to more websites than any other search engine in China. Lobby group Reporters without Borders tested Yahoo!, Google, MSN and It found that Yahoo! censors its results even more strictly than local portal

The research also found that Microsoft, which claims not to censor its results, returns very similar results to Google, which admits to filtering its content. A search using a subversive word returns 83 per cent pro-government websites on versus 78 per cent on Perform the same search on and only 28 per cent of the results will be pro-Beijing websites."
