US Rebukes Yahoo over Chinese Reporter's Imprisonment

There's a lot of news coverage on the imprisonment of pro-Democracy journalist Shi Tao and discussion in the forums. Search Engine Land writes that Jerry Yang has apologized to the family of Tao and says that they will support them while he is in jail.

Forum members are a bit disgusted that Yahoo gave information to China about this reporter which helped him be imprisoned -- but then refused to acknowledge any part in it. Eventually, Yahoo succumbed to the pressure, but forum members are unimpressed. As one forum member says, "hypocrisy knows no bounds."

Forum discussion continues at DigitalPoint Forums and WebmasterWorld.
