Microsoft's Bing search engine is found to offer different search results for users in China compared to users in the US when looking for information on the persecuted Uyghur minority. This suggests that Microsoft is 'erasing' the suffering of the Uyghurs from internet searches in China.
Microsoft, the world's most valuable company, is 'erasing' the suffering of the persecuted Uyghur minority from internet searches in China, The Post has learned.
One example of the discrepancy in search results is seen in Bing image results. When searching for the term 'Uyghur' in China, cheerful images of Uyghurs are displayed, which align with the Chinese Communist regime's propaganda that portrays Uyghurs as leading idyllic lives. This runs counter to the reality of the Chinese government's campaign against the Uyghurs, which has been denounced by the UN as 'serious human rights violations' and declared a 'genocide' by the US State Department.
Results from the tech giant's Bing search engine show how its Chinese users are presented with different results from American users.
