Sept. 11 brought another type of tragedy this year: the killing of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three members of his staff, as well as attacks on an American embassy and consulate in Egypt and Libya.
The attacks were in response to a Southern California-made, anti-Islamic video posted on YouTube
Mountain View-based Google the offending video from viewers in Egypt and Libya hours after the attacks, and sense then has censored it in India and Indonesia, according to the San Jose Mercury News. On Friday afternoon, the company had refused to remove the video completely.
Our question for you this week: Do YouTube and Google have a responsibility to censor anti-Islamic videos? Did they do the right thing by blocking access in the Middle East? Should they be more proactive in censoring videos in the future?
