Am I the only person noticing a silence, bordering on total, from the big lefty blogs?
There are plenty of examples in history of the Left looking the other way when oppression rears its ugly head. Just one -- the non-reactions of presidential candidates Gene McCarthy and George McGovern in 1968 when the Russian tanks rolled into Czechoslovakia and crushed the Prague Spring, as documented by Evans & Novak in their column just before that year's Democratic convention (sorry, I don't have a link, but I remember it like it was yesterday; e-mail me if you have a link).
If I am correct, the big left blogs' ignorance of the Google censorship story may be yet another instance of "see no evil" when it's perpetrated in the name of a Communist government.
Here's what I've done to check into the coverage (as of roughly 2:30 PM ET; click on the links indicated to do the searches yourself):
So who's really living in a bubble? Is it asking too much to expect SOMEONE, especially the bigwigs, at three of the left's top blogs to notice that over a billion people are having what they can see filtered by an oppressive regime?
Say it ain't so, Kos, and Atrios, and MyDD.
