Politicos Attack Tech Firms Over China

I posted the following response to a news.com article regarding the chest-thumping of politicians about human rights in China in light of Google's cooperation with Beijing to create a censored site.

My business is socially responsible investing. I pulled up my handy dandy Ideals Work database and pulled up a list of companies that had knocks on them for either "ties to Chinese government" or "ties to oppressive regimes". I came up with the list below. Obviously, Google is not showing up yet. It's not pretty. Perhaps these congressional reps should first check to see who donated to their campaign, and haul them all in. I would be happy to elaborate on these further. My email is below.
