A regular Google search for Tibet crackdown returns about 1.810.000 links. The same search filtered through returns 110 links. You do not need to click on any of the links to conclude that the approach in the web contents linked to through each of the two searches are different like day and night.

Since nobody could possibly read 1,8 M web pages anyway, I guess the Chinese Internet users should be grateful that their government spares them the trouble of browsing through all that “irrelevant information”. 😛
