(Newser) – In the latest dust up between China and Google, the jilted nation is accusing the corporation of aiding US intelligence. "Google is not a virgin when it comes to values," sniffed Communist Party tool the China Daily, referring to Google's recent refusal to enforce Chinese censorship. "Its cooperation and collusion with the US intelligence and security agencies is well-known." It's not entirely clear what the newspaper was referring to. Earlier this week Google shut its mainland China portal and rerouted operations to Hong Kong, notes Reuters.
