Citizens should be discreet in trusting media, CDC sub-panel chief says

"... citizens should be taught to be critical of the mass media and not readily believe in whatever information they are fed ..."

... especially that coming from the local Thaksin controlled media empire and its "western" propaganda arm, Robert (I'll support anyone vehemently who's rich enough to pay me) Amsterdam ...

Sad to say, too many people lap up the lies coming from these people.

The landscape at the moment is all blue and yellow, but you still managed to find a red spot, and put the blame on it!!

Well done Sir!!

The landscape is most certainly NOT "all" blue and yellow at the moment, and you'd realize that if you got your news, rumors, comments and information from more than one source, and especially from the non-mainstream news forums or online sources that are not as heavily (self) censored as they are within Thailand.

The likes of the mainstream public TV news and papers might be somewhat one-sided (and even more so in recent months), but there's a whole lot more information out there if you ignore those and do some more in-depth research as to what is actually going on here now and has been going on for a goodly number of years prior to this.

Case in point is the blocking of the HRW site ... there is information out there in the public domain that they don't want people to know about, because once they lose control of the media (or at least the spin they try to put on things), they lose control of the country. This applies to "all" sides.

The recent and very sudden stripping of the royally bestowed name of Princess Srirasmi Akrapongpreecha was also very interesting.

Oh, great. Worked well in the cultural revolution, and the Khmer Rouge. Oh yeah the Hitlerjugend.

Lots of attention these days given to keeping the media in line. Starting to get interesting.

As for trusting and being discreet

"Freedom on the Net 2014 – the fifth annual comprehensive study of internet freedom around the globe, covering developments in 65 countries that occurred between May 2013 and May 2014 –finds internet freedom around the world in decline for the fourth consecutive year, with 36 out of 65 countries assessed in the report experiencing a negative trajectory during the coverage period.

In a departure from the past, when most governments preferred a behind-the-scenes approach to internet control, countries rapidly adopted new laws that legitimize existing repression and effectively criminalize online dissent."

"The UK’s Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) ruled Friday that GCHQ’s mass surveillance TEMPORA program is legal ... in principle."

See?

And Farangs are giving personal data away just to find out if they are cheated by their gf (other topic)

Laws can be changed from one day to another - some countries don't even need Martial Law for this - but your personal data remain stored in the database.
