“Communication misunderstanding” cited for ABC News interview with Wild Boars

“Communication misunderstanding” was blamed as the reason why US-based ABC News television was the first news outlet to  interview the 13 Wild Boars boys and their football coach  following their hospital discharge last month.

 

The ABC News exclusive interview was conducted in the chapel of Wat Phrathat Doi Wao in Chiang Rai’s Muang district on Wednesday and the programme was aired the following day in the “Good Morning America” programme of ABC News.

 

The interview caused an uproar among local and foreign media which felt the Thai government granted special privilege to the American TV while discouraging others from talking to the 13 Tham Luang cave survivors.

"...He also dismissed a suggestion that ABC News had paid for the right to interview the boys and their coach..."

 

I believed the story fully as it is easy for mistakes to occur anywhere/anytime, until the third to last sentence from the complete story (quoted above).

 

Any time a Thai Official feels the need to state that no bribes were paid, I assume that bribes were paid.

 

Wonder how much it was...?

In the same vein, I'm sure it wasn't five million Baht.

So  they're crying foul and trying to turn the story to be all about themselves and their hurt feelings being left out of the glory and money making race...

More likely a "Brown envelop under the table understanding" to grease the gears.
TIT - same, same and not different.

That is why nothing gets done in Thailand.  Nobody is able to understand on another regardless what language is spoken. 

 

Once this special blood sucking committee was set up, problems were sure to follow, hardly a surprise.   Hope they do the movie in Malaysia.

From the news article:

 

"Thai PBS reporters managed to interview parents of some of the boys and were told that they were verbally notified about the interview two days in advance by an official of the provincial social development and human security office.

During the actual interview, some parents doubted why their boys were interviewed because they were informed that it would be only an informal talk between ABC news reporter and the boys."

 

I wonder how the interview with the boys went, and how differently the parents expected it to have gone if it had been an informal talk.

Who cares the Boars are history. It's all over. Nobody is interested next week Somchai will swing to Isan on the electric wires and Pun will drug and rob some farang and Prayut will fly.

Boars are benched

Of course it means nothing,  that's not the point, the point is to avoid/deflect responsibility for a negative situation/criticism by any means necessary
