2) Yahoo helps jail Chinese journalists
America is supposed to be the land of the free and home of the brave.
But in China five years ago, the journalists were not so free and Yahoo was not so brave. The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Web portal was denounced as an enemy of free speech by members of Congress and human rights groups after the Internet portal turned over information that helped China's government jail two journalists.
The journalists were attempting to report that Chinese dissidents could be in danger if they returned to the country to mark the 15th anniversary of Tiananmen Square massacre. Both reporters received a 10-year prison sentence. (Pictured here is Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang.)
