U.S. Senator Probes Baidu-Facebook Partnership

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin from Illinois has written a letter to Baidu's chief executive asking to confirm whether rumors about Facebook's entry to China via a partnership with the search giant is true, and if so, how would this affect free speech and privacy.

Although Facebook has yet to release an official statement about a partnership with search engine Baidu in order to finally enter the Chinese market, many regard the move as a done deal. That includes U.S. Senator Dick Durbin.
