AP- A writer for The New Yorker will not promote his new book about Google during a China visit after being warned the media are restricted from writing about the company, which angered the government by moving its search engine off the mainland to avoid censorship.

“It’s disappointing, not to mention outrageous,” Auletta said. He said he wouldn’t know where to begin to appeal to the Chinese government. “It sounds like a faceless decision. It doesn’t sound like one person you appeal to … It just sounds like ‘1984.’”

Auletta’s book, “Googled: The End of the World as We Know It,” came out in the U.S. last fall, and a Chinese publisher bought the rights.
