Asiapundit‘s myrick gives us an update yesterday [1]on detained Chinese blogger Wu Hao's situation: “With the initial burst of reporting and support having failed to secure his release, [Global Voices] has launched a petition to directly appeal to President Hu Jintao [2],” and today [3] a clarification on any possible mischaracterization of the search engines Yahoo! and Google, whose restricted Chinese-language service have brought accusations of censorship: “Essentially, Google is still providing uncensored search results in China while AOL now is buying Chinese content from a state-linked media group to broadcast outside of China.”
