Reports of the fight that broke out between Georgetown and a team in China were widespread in the United States, but were quashed in China by government censors. Washington Post reporter Gene Wang, who was present at the game, writes, “Xinhua News Agency, China’s official news service, did not have an immediate account of the game, and although other prominent Chinese Web sites such as and posted stories, government censors shortly thereafter took them down.”

Here’s to the First Amendment in our country.
