First off, where did the news-item say this was a bad thing? Don't play victim over nothing.
Secondly, of course you're right. Anyone who argues against sovereignty of a country's government over its own country is not thinking straight.
If one thinks censorship is bad, then of course the Chinese (government) is bad as well, but this may be too quick to judge. But let's not forget the other guilty party in this case, one which can more easily be judged: Google, rooted in a free (uncensored, 'not evil') society model, whom knowingly entered a censored market.
Playing along with your government, only to later on -hypocritically- state they don't want do censorship. After failing to get local web search dominance and cyber attacks from Chinese.
The latter one most likely due to your government. Which is inexcusable, no matter how you'd put it, but sadly also unprovable.
