How’s this for “don’t be evil?”

Every so often, Google releases its Transparency Report, when it tells users which government agencies have asked the search giant to remove content or hand over user data.

This year, the worst offender was India.

Here to talk with us in today’s Mid-day Extra is Rebecca Rosen of The Atlantic, who’s been following the story. She explained what the data means, why India might not really be the worst offender, and how the U.S. stacks up.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
