Title: In this post, I’ll be commenting on the article found on http://www.nytimes.com called “New China Search Engine Will be State-Controlled” by David Barboza.
Comments: This article is a little scary. The thought of one group controlling what information comes through the search engines is terrifying, especially if that one group is the governing body of the country. In the case of China, the government can then control all of the information their citizens are allowed to see because of monitoring from the Search Engine New Media International Communications Company. This is dangerous, though not likely to spread to the U.S. It will however hinder the people of China, which is a huge chunk of the world’s population. This is one example of how new media can still be dangerous in the wrong hands, and is something that should be watched out for in the future.
