China to Limit Web Access During Olympic Games reported Chinese officials, speaking about the Internet restrictions on Wednesday, said they would not allow foreign journalists to visit Web sites that violated Chinese laws.
So if they are going to write about restrictions on human rights, they need to specify what info they need, and have someone in their home country look it up.
In its negotiations with the Chinese over Internet controls, the Olympic committee official said, the panel insisted only that China provide unregulated access to sites containing information useful to sports reporters covering athletic competitions, not to a broader array of sites that the Chinese and the Olympic committee negotiators determined had little relevance to sports.
I wonder if Sports Illustrates would be willing to add an Anonymous Web Browser / Proxy Server to their site, and if they did, how long the Sports Illustrated site would be able to be accessed.

If you don't want to have a media field day, there should be some controls on what goes on at the Olympics. Too much unnecessary info is not logical or necessary....ANON
