YouTube Goes Dark in China

ZDNet: As of Monday, YouTube is unavailable in China, an unexplained move apparently made in response to the existence of a video of Chinese soldiers beating Tibetan monks, says the BBC.

I think the Chinese government is fully justified. I mean, the video was clearly one-sided and unbalanced in that it failed to present the soldiers' side of the story. This was a clear violation of the fairness doctrine, no doubt.

We often need the government to remind us what is fair. The Chinese understand this more than most. They are right to insist on fairness.
