Chinese Reaction to the NSA Scandal

Dave Weigel happened to be in Shanghai when NSA wiretapping hit the news, so he got his Chinese-speaking friend to ask some strangers on the street what they thought. Nothing, mostly; after all, Chinese people all know that anything they post online is monitored by their own government. One said, in defense of internet censorship,
If you're not monitoring people, they can say whatever they want.

Then what is the difference between the so called democratic or free country like US to countries like China and Russia? USA, are you still qualified to critize others?
