Microsoft Helping China Hide Tiananmen Search Info On 32nd Anniversary

On the 32nd anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, Big Tech search engines led by Microsoft censored image results across the world for "tank man," a reference to the protester who stood in front of Chinese tanks.

Google's Threat Analysis Group director Shane Huntley first pointed out the phenomenon. "I know Microsoft censor for the CCP in China, but this search is from the US," Huntley tweeted on Friday. Security researcher Kevin Beaumont tweeted the same empty result from the United Kingdom as well.

"There are no results for tank man," is the message that comes up on the Bing website when searching for the term. DuckDuckGo followed suit, an internet search engine that distinguishes itself from others in the industry by emphasizing the protection of user privacy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Microsoft is saying this was just a "glitch."
