  1. It’s sad that these companies actually could make a difference if they all stood up to China’s human rights violations, but money matters more than humanity to these corporations.

  2. Back in the day, one of the major agurments in favor of economic engagement with China is that it was supposed to result in the opening up of the Chinese government and of democratic possibilities within China.

    That… Clearly has not worked.

    But now, making money in China has somehow become the moral end in and of itself.

    No one, it seems, even remembers the reason why western businesses were even allowed to open there in the first place.

  3. South Park was right as usual on so many levels

  4. We literally put “in god we trust” on our momey because of communist scare…

    Now they just line up on theirs knees, mouths open and ready.

    So much for personal freedom eh?

  5. So, not only has Apple chosen to avoid R-rated for adults content entirely, thus competing more with the likes of NBC and CBS, but now content creators have to appease the CHINESE censors (who have all sorts of weird issues with everything from magic to race)?!

    Apple’s one small step from having to give their shows away just to get people to watch them.

    Hard pass.

  6. The trailers for their shows so far don’t even seem interesting.

  7. Apple has to be one of the most hypocritical companies on the planet. They have commercials bragging about privacy and Tim cook shames ad-based business models, meanwhile they’re storing encryption keys in China and doing whatever they can to maintain business interests there.
