Title: Bing censors "Tank Man" search
Post by: nobodyjune61944 on June 04, 2021, 04:06:21 PM
The commie suckups at the USA tech giants have censored all searches (including in the good ole USA) for "Tank Man" from the Tiananmen Square protest/massacre on behalf of the Chinese Communists.

No, this is not satire.

Shows up fine for me if I make the search term a little less generic than just "tank man."

The famous pic showed up right away for me using ‘Tianamen Square Tank Man’ using Google images.

He’s talking about bing...not google.

Interesting how when these cases of censorship are brought into the light, they always get blamed on "human error" (https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/human-error-led-no-matching-bing-images-tiananmen-tank-man-n1269727).

Communism was a pretty big human error, so I guess that explanation checks out.   :-"

This should have been in R&P, which is locked for the time being, so this thread will now be too.
