It seems that the China Tibet Information Center, run by the Chinese government, are running amok with Google Ads:

They're advertising on websites as diverse as that of the American newspaper New York Times and on chinaSMACK.com, a blog that translates Chinese Internet forum comments into English.

Shanghaiist reported in November 2008 that Tibet Information Center ads had started appearing on YouTube as well as their website.

"A window for touching Tibet" and "Your best choice of knowing Tibet" are just two of the slogans used in the ads with a backdrop of Tibetan temples, landscape, the Himalayas or similar.

China gives money to Google when the CIA gives money to the Dalai Lama for the same propaganda purposes.

i always knew that real butter held the secret to truly great cookies.

news that matters.

That's google adwords. Any websites with words that fall into certain category (such as 'China' or 'Tibet') will have a chance to show propaganda ads from both sides (if there's any from the other side).

Toba said: "China gives money to Google when the CIA gives money to the Dalai Lama for the same propaganda purposes."

I agree with you. In fact the CIA gives a lot more than China does.

hahahahaa nice one. but seriously, google isn't a media organization, many more people read nyt or cnn than youtube so china better sponsor these ones instead of google.

In fact, Dalai lama still receives special funding from cia. Have you ever seen any coverage on the period when Dalai lama was still the political leader in tibet? Of course not cz’ someone don’t want you to know the cruelty of Dalai regime (i.e. 100% slavery, hash punishment including eye gouging, Dalai and all lamas were slave masters...blah blah blah)…Surely the Chinese government has its propaganda schedules, but who doesn’t? All I m saying is that you should listen to the stories from both sides. The truth is somewhere between.
World Peace!
