Makes Me Wonder About the International Olympic Committee / Asia-Pacific / China - China limits Olympics journalists’ web access I guess freedom and democracy are not important to the Olympic committee.
Beijing’s refusal to suspend censorship controls and the IOC’s previous assurances will cast a renewed spotlight on the international sports group’s handling of preparations for the Games.

Kevan Gosper, chairman of the IOC's press commission, said he “regretted” news of the restricted access to the internet for foreign media, but suggested committee colleagues had dealt with the Chinese on the issue without his knowledge
So freedom isn't important to the Olympic committee. I guess that is nothing new. But should it be?
