Thai media concerned over rapid passage of new media regulation law


Recommended Posts



Thai media professionals have expressed concern that the government may be pushing for a speedy deliberation of a government-sponsored bill to promote the ethics of media organisations and practitioners, expected to be submitted to the joint sitting of the Senate and House on Tuesday.


Supan Rakchuea, president of the News Broadcast Council of Thailand, told Thai PBS on Friday that the government appears unusually keen to pass the bill, initiated by the Public Relations Department and drafted by the Council of State.


He cited the fact that Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan wrote a letter to Parliament President Chuan Leekpai on September 6th last year, asking him to add the bill to the agenda for emergency deliberations in parliament.

Passage of this bill that will further restrict journalist reporting? Must be an election coming. 

Yet, when have we ever received any such real journalism?

Freedom of speech and write??? more laws... only what the Government approves can be broadcasted?? Sponsors on TV for what... not for the quality of programmes, lower than there is already is almost impossible...so who is filling the pockets again??.. 

Please stop these unuseful laws.. They don't add anything.....,


And if the media is really concerned please investigate deeply and bring it out free and without restrictions, but they don't dare it as it can cost their license
