After blocking the profiles of several U.S. journalists, including mine, from its China-based website, LinkedIn has repeatedly avoided answering key questions about the censorship.
Why it matters: LinkedIn has promised transparency to its users regarding its China operations.
The big picture: U.S. internet companies once claimed they could help make China more open and free. But Beijing has instead brought them to heel.
Here are key questions about how LinkedIn identifies and removes accounts from its site in China. Axios sent these questions to LinkedIn in four separate messages and received a response but no answers.
1. Were the recently affected accounts removed because of specific, individual requests by Chinese government authorities?
2. Does LinkedIn maintain an internal list of topics considered prohibited in China?
3. What specific Chinese law did the content on the profiles break?
4. If LinkedIn has blocked accounts in China due to self-censorship, will it make the number of such actions publicly known?
What they're saying: A LinkedIn spokesperson referred me to the same statement the company provided last week:
What to watch: There is growing congressional interest in this issue. Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) and Sen. Rick Scott (R- Fla.) have both sent letters to LinkedIn in recent weeks demanding answers regarding the company's censorship.

Developing new military technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, will be necessary to prevent a war with China or other adversaries, Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) said at an Axios event Friday.
Why it matters: With the war on terror ramping down and competition with China increasing, Kelly said it's time for the U.S. to adapt its military technology to address threats in the western Pacific, specifically China.

The Justice Department on Monday asked the Supreme Court to temporarily block Texas' near-total ban on abortions while federal courts consider its constitutionality.
The big picture: The court last month allowed the ban to take effect, rejecting an emergency application by abortion-rights groups. The law bars the procedure after cardiac activity is detected, as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

In 2008, a box of 30 anti-inflammatory rectal suppositories that treats arthritis, called Indocin, had a price tag of $198. As of Oct. 1, the price of that same box was 52 times higher, totaling $10,350.
Why it matters: As federal lawmakers continue to waver on drug price reforms, Indocin is another example of how nothing prevents drug companies from hiking prices at will and selling them within a broken supply chain.
