Media and surveillance: Yahoo in China

Where do I read the charges that Yahoo technology may have helped to implicate a jailed Chinese journalist? On Yahoo's news site.

Tech companies are not only growing into media giants, but also sprouting formidable surveillance tools. (Yahoo, according to the article, withheld comment and is looking into the matter.) One question: If it's true that the Chinese government can draw such intelligence from a tech company, who's to say that other governments won't follow suit? More from Reporters without Borders.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
