China tries to limit Internet vitriol toward the West

LA Times has an article with more details - China tries to limit Internet vitriol toward the West

China is using there Internet monitoring ability to delete any posts about boycotts and protests of foreign companies.

China's government is in a tough position. They need to appear responsive and stand up to foreign criticism of China (such as by CNN's commentator Jack Cafferty who described China's leaders as a "bunch of goons and thugs."), and still make foreigners welcome for the Olympics that's goal is to show how modern China is. The 8/8/8 Olympics is seen as China's coming out party, after over a century of China being seen as backward and not a major power (starting with the Opium War).
