CCTV Attacks Google Porn Links, Fake Interview Exposed

“CCTV vs. Google.cn”

On the evening of June 18, CCTV’s and reported on Google.cn carrying pornographic and vulgar information (see video.sina.com).

On the same day, netizens began to question quickly. Search engines frequently offer likely search terms because these are popular with other users. As such, the search engines are not responsible because they are only reporting what users are “voting” on with their searches. Thus, when Google.cn proposes certain relevant search terms, they are merely informing you what other netizens are most commonly searching for. They are reflecting the facts of life, and it shows that Google.cn is being fair and objective. Rather than blaming the search engines, we should be blaming people for wanting to look up pornography which proliferate on the Chinese Internet.

Similarly, other search engines such as Baidu and Bing contain the same kinds of pornographic information, but CCTV completely ignores them. Netizens made screen captures to show that Baidu is no less vulgar than Google.cn …

google-vs-baidu-search-mm

Explanation: When ‘mm‘ (which is the shorthand for ‘young woman’) is entered into Google.cn, the search engine recommends ‘mm naked in bath,’ ‘mm sex,’ ‘mm bathing,’ ‘mm8mm8,’ ‘mm entire process of bathing,’ ‘mm bathing video,’ ‘mm apartment’ and ‘mm expose.’ When ‘mm’ is entered into Baidu, the search engines recommends ‘mm super-sexy see-through underwear,’ ‘mm sex positions in bed,’ ‘mm entire process of using sanitary napkin,’ ‘mm sexiness in bed,’ ‘mm pretty picture,’ ‘mm sexy breasts,’ ‘mm sexy,’ ‘mm pictures,’ ‘mm pretty breasts’ and ‘mm changing clothes.’

Baidu image search results for ‘mm’.

Chinese Internet celebrities such as keso and William Long point out that CCTV’s attack against Google.cn is designed to justify the notorious Green Dam software as well as benefiting Baidu which had paid 40 million RMB to sponsor CCTV’s …

Our question is that if Google.cn also ends up donating money to CCTV eventually, then this is blackmail/extortion. But who in China dares to discuss the law with CCTV?

This afternoon, sharp-eyed netizens noted from the Xiaonei website that the so-called righteous university student Gao Ye interviewed by CCTV was actually a worker from CCTV’s program! [On the show, Gao Ye spoke about a fellow student who became absent-minded after viewing some pornography on the Internet.]

Here are the netizen condemnations over at Gao Ye’s blog [Xiaonei profile].

It does not matter how much you emphasize that you did not mean what you said on tv, you must sooner or later be held responsible for fooling the people.

You are going to be held responsible sooner or later.

I only want to ask what happened to your absent-minded friend. Has he installed Green Dam? Is he no longer absent-minded after installing Green Dam?

I came here purely to watch.

What didn’t you speak of Baidu?

The dedicated successor of a totalitarian regime.

gao-ye-comments-2

So you were on !

He he, that’s it!

So you are a insider. So interviews their own worker who pretends to be a university student … “fifty-cent gang” … you are one of the legendary fifty-cent gang member.

Pure fifty-cent gang member …

I watched and I listened to your righteous enumeration of the crimes of Google.cn. I got curious and I visited Google.cn. I ended up being unable to sleep all night.

Lying in front of the entire Chinese people. Disgusting!

Virgin???

Fifty-cent gang member.

You are red-hot popular now. Do you feel absent-minded?

Don’t do that again. It is not right.

I am sorry. I only came here to watch.

Yes, you have really gotten your absent-minded friend in trouble.

You are really unethical. Every filthy-minded Chinese man knows that your buddy is absent-minded!

  • lostinshenzhen

    This is a hoot and a stalking horse (of the non alpaca variety. Go on….install green dam….it will be hijacked and produce virtual mayhem.

  • Ron

    Chinese must be pervs, because when I type “young woman” into America’s google.com, porn in definitely *not* what is displayed in the top 20 results…

    • Lei

      Because “young woman” in english and “mm” in chinese have completely different connotations, you should try “hot chicks” or “hot girls” instead.

      • Ron

        That doesn’t hold water, since “young woman” is *young* *woman*, and “hot chicks” is explicitly erotic.

        • Janz

          And “mm” is not the same as “young woman”.

        • mm88

          mm is technically not young woman either, but “little sister” 妹妹 or a euphemism for her downstairs parts.

          • janz

            Meh, it‘s either “little sister” 妹妹 or “pretty girl” 美眉(literally: pretty eyebrow)。

          • Ron

            “little sister”????

            That’s even *more* pervy!!!!

            @ Ron

            Ron, your comments are ridiculous. Every different nationality has different uses of certain words.
