Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) Crawls back to China

Chinese state media published, and later deleted, a comment piece saying that Google was welcome to return to China as long as it complied with Chinese rules.

The post, published on People’s Daily newspaper on Monday, responded to a recent report by The Intercept that Google, which pulled out of mainland China in 2010, was planning to relaunch a search service in mainland China, complete with government censorship.

Reports of such a move from Google raised concerns from privacy advocates because it would block material online that the Chinese government does not like. But the country’s state-backed media has taken a different view.

Regardless of its withdrawal, or whether it can regain access to the mainland, Google has been a politicized brand. This is undoubtedly a tragedy for this well-known multinational company.

Shayne Heffernan of HEFFX said “Google made a fundamental error playing politics with China in the past, let’s see if they can keep their politics to themselves this time”
