BANGKOK (NNT) - Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan has delivered the government’s policy for the Ministry of a Digital Economy and Society, to tackle fake news and illegal websites, while promoting online media literacy among members of the public.

 

Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan said today that social media platforms have become hosts for social conflicts, sedition, and inappropriate expressions, urging the Ministry of a Digital Economy and Society (MDES) to take more proactive action, which includes blocking access to illegal websites and prosecuting the persons involved.

 

He has called on the MDES to coordinate with the Royal Thai Police, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, internet service providers, and platform owners, while implementing advanced technology to detect illegal websites and raising public awareness of online media literacy.

 

On social and security sites, the DPM delivered the policy to the MDES to focus on assisting elders and underprivileged persons by promoting their access to digital technology, and to drive forward the roles of the National Cyber Security Committee to prevent cyber attacks.

 

On the economy, Gen Prawit has urged the MDES to step up digital technology implementation to help the general public generate more income, drive forward the national 5G network and promote the utilization of this high-speed mobile network infrastructure.

Actually second paragraph since a reprint in 2016. First paragraph was replaced with "Call anything you don't like 'Fake news'."

Rolex .?

 

Cuts both ways .. it can be equally applied that some of what emanates from Gov' organs is just as fake and misleading as the material they perceive as being inciting and seditious ..

This will increase digital literacy, which comes with the side effect the population learns how badly they are treated.

Exactly, he should be careful what he wishes for.

I see multiple posters have beaten me to it on the TAT front.

You need to set the alarm clock for 4am to get to the head of the posting que!  😀

 

And talking about alarm clocks does Rolex make a bedside version for old dinosaurs that should be in nursing homes?

I wonder how he will manage this? Will there be a ministry of fact checking, for all government released press releases?

Will they open the internet to full access to all overseas websites?

This sounds more like a ploy to get further control of the internet and stifle any open discussion on government and other social issues.

I wonder how long before there is an "internet based" movement to promote the PM for lifetime control.

I note that his wrist is not in the photograph, not wearing the Piaget today?

One could ask if the current government is "lawful "civil" authority"? Given the current situation in the senate.

I don't think a large portion of the population would consider the current government legitimate....but what can they do?  Complain and grumble in the village endlessly as no one has the power or the right tools to remove the usurpers.

In a country where free speech does not exist, one of the country's least trusted official and biggest embarrassment has the gall to talk about fake news.   He is no small part as to why many think the current government is so evil.

Good move, watch boy.

So... will that "tackling" also be directed at fake news coming from your OWN government and/or its agencies?

Or is "fake news tackling" exclusively limited to content that YOU and your ilk find objectionable for a multitude of obscure reasons?

Just asking.

I set my alarm for 5 am on my Samsung dumbphone on the days I play golf.

I bought a Rolex in Jakarta many years ago, the hands stopped moving after two weeks.

Chewing pabulum and sitting in sodden diapers is not my style, you have my permission to take me out and shoot me instead.

I am T-rex.

The OP - are we sure this guy's first name is not really F###wit?
