From The Wall Street Journall

BEIJING—Chinese state-run media trumpeted comments by Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates that played down China's Internet restrictions, as the government continued to ratchet up its rebuttal of recent U.S. criticisms of its Web policies.

Mr. Gates, in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" this week, said that China's "efforts to censor the Internet have been very limited," and likened its controls to those of other countries. In separate comments, he criticized Microsoft rival Google Inc.'s statement this month that it would stop obeying Beijing's censorship rules on its Chinese-language site, and might close its offices in the country.
