Mr. Schmidt made the argument he long has, according to these
people, namely that it is moral to do business in China in an
effort to try to open up the regime. Mr. Brin strenuously argued
the other side, namely that the company had done enough trying and
that it could no longer justify censoring its search results.
How the debate ultimately resolved itself remains unclear.
Actually, it seems pretty clear how it resolved.
