China will not guarantee it won't censor the Internet over this summer's Beijing Olympics, nor can it guarantee to stamp out piracy of Olympic-branded goods, officials said on Thursday.

Wang Wei, executive vice president of the Beijing Olympic organisers, had promised media would have "complete freedom" to report over the event, but rights groups have regularly criticised China's commitment to that pledge.

China had guarateed that the media would have "complete freedom" while covering the Olympics, well now it seems that they had lied in order to be able to host the Olympics.

Really shouldn't be THAT much of a surprise to most people.

But how WRONG is that?

China has lied to the Olympic committee, an organization that tries to bring the world together, and every other nation that participates in the Olympics!

How can one country be soooo paranoid. China's paranoia is just ridiculous!
