SHANGHAI, July 4 (Reuters) - China's top search engine Baidu said on Monday that it had signed a deal with Microsoft's Bing search engine to offer English-language search to Baidu users.

Baidu dominates China's search engine market after Google Inc pulled out following a high-profile fallout with Beijing over censorship last year. (Reporting by Jason Subler; Editing by Jacqueline Wong)

Profits trumps principles once again. Through its facilitation of the fascist regime in China- censoring information such as the cover-up of SARS and other epidemics, allowing the regime to access users’ hotmail accounts, providing technology that supports the control and subjugation of people, offering a respectable face to a state that shows open contempt for human rights- Microsoft once again demonstrates that it would have used the same excuses it uses today to justify its partnership with the Nazis. It is absolutely disgusting that another American company is willing to spit on its’ country’s values to make a fast buck in the here-and-now.
