Chinese Regime to Create Own Search Engine

There’s a new search engine looking to compete with Baidu and Google in the Chinese market.
The Chinese regime’s Xinhua News Agency and state-owned China Mobile have signed a contract to co-create an Internet search engine.
A Xinhua story about its new search engine states its purpose is to (quote) “better serve the work of the Party and the nation and to practically protect national interests…and to expand the reach and the ability in and outside China of the country’s mainstream media to guide public opinion.”
Market analysts doubt the new engine, which may go by the name “Goso,” will stand much of a chance against the immensely popular Baidu and Google engines.
