Broken Promise!

"Web sites will be censored at Beijing Olympic media centers, a spokesman for the organizing committee said Wednesday, contradicting a pledge to allow foreign reporters unlimited access to the Internet.Web sites of organizations critical of China, including Amnesty International and Reporters Without Borders, are unavailable at the main press facility in Beijing. Sun Weide, the chief spokesman for the Beijing Olympics organizing committee, said journalists would not be allowed to access Web sites connected to banned organizations like the Falungong religious movement. He declined to comment on the unavailability of other Web sites".
