More proof that global corporations are anti-democracy

Microsoft Shuts Blog's Site After Complaints by Beijing
Microsoft has shut the blog site of a well-known Chinese blogger who uses its MSN online service in China after he discussed a high-profile newspaper strike that broke out here one week ago.

The decision is the latest in a series of measures in which some of America's biggest technology companies have cooperated with the Chinese authorities to censor Web sites and curb dissent or free speech online as they seek access to China's booming Internet marketplace.
It's called corporate censorship, and it's the new pink.
