China's state-run newspaper, People's Daily, is accusing Google of unfairly censoring it's online book section from search results, calling it "revenge" because they publishing a story questioning Google's book scanning practices along with possible copyright issues. My friends, this is rich.

Google claims their site automatically removed the search listing because of perceived malware threats, and had nothing to do with what People's Daily actually published. People's daily though feels as though they were the victim of an unfair attack, calling the event "malicious."
