Google: Government Requests To Censor Content "Alarming"

I like how Google makes it sound like this is "alarming" news. Various governments trying to censor free speech on the internet? No way! roll eyes (sarcastic)

In its twice-yearly Transparency Report, the world's largest web search engine said the requests were aimed at having some 12,000 items overall removed, about a quarter more than during the first half of last year. Many of those requests targeted political speech, keeping up a trend Google said it has noticed since it started releasing its Transparency Report in 2010.
