Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on news reports that Google is considering creating a search engine that will comply with the Chinese government's censorship requirements:

"Google said it wouldn't bow to Beijing's censorship, and it should stick to its word, especially now that it's canceled its partnership with our military. Google claims to value freedom and one hopes Google will put its corporate principles and America first, ahead of Chinese cash."
