Microsoft censors Chinese blogger

Microsoft has admitted removing the blog of an outspoken Chinese journalist from its MSN Spaces site, citing its policy of adhering to local national laws.

The blog written by Zhao Jing, also known as Michael Anti, was removed from MSN servers on New Year's Eve, according to investigative journalist and former CNN reporter Rebecca Mackinnon. She claimed the blog was actively removed by MSN staff rather than being blocked by Chinese authorities. Microsoft censors Chinese blogger - ZDNet UK News
