I don’t have the strength to point out the awfulness of the IOC anymore. The crux of this post over at Commentary by Gordon Chang, however, is this: Either the IOC lied when they said that the Internet in China wouldn’t be censored*, or the Chinese lied when they said they wouldn’t censor the Internet, knowing it would be too late for the IOC to do anything about it once Games-time rolled around.**
*You mean a group of corrupt bureaucrats more interested in lining their personal coffers than putting on a good games might have lied to make their decision more defensible? I’m shocked, shocked!
**You mean a brutal, repressive dictatorship might restrict access to the freest form of communication and news-dispersal available to the masses? I’m shocked, shocked!
