China Calls Google's Hacking Charges "Political Gaming"

China’s official Communist Party newspaper issued a caustic response to Google’s charge that Chinese hackers had taken aim at influential users of its Gmail service, calling the accusations “political gaming” aimed at fomenting new discord between the Beijing and Washington governments. The newspaper, People’s Daily, published a front-page editorial in its international editions that also suggested that Google’s actions could cost it credibility in the business world.
