Microsoft, care to comment?


> A Microsoft spokesperson told Motherboard in an email that “This is due to an accidental human error and we are actively working to resolve this.” What a blatantly obvious lie.


I’m now seeing bing images for tank man searches, but most are not ‘that’ picture. Several thumbnails are greyed out /no preview available and those click through to actual tank man photos. So we’ve gone from heavy handed censorship to softer, bury the results you don’t like. Well done Microsoft!


I think that’s one way to get attention focused on the incident again. The first thing I did was do an image search for tank man and it seemed to work fine. I guess I missed it, but he’s a person who should never be forgotten.


Surely a business like Microsoft would never censor content to their userbase. /s
