Media War

exposing media bias in Thailand

Thai internet censorhip is #5 in the world


FACT blog with reference to Herdict  says so. Thailand is just behind  USA (#4), and Moldova (#3), China (#2), Iran (#1).

FACT comments: For the first time, Thailand has appeared in the list of top five countries imposing Internet censorship on their citizens. This is due to the fact that Herdict reporting software is being used intensively to provide accurate monitoring. Presumably, FACTsite is somewhere on that list! It should give Thai govt with all its pretensions of democracy to fall into an elite censorship club,  just behind Iran, China, Moldova, and the United States (for reasons of copyright protection).

somehow I’m not surprised at all. in fact, I get the feeling that Thailand may well be #1  (or at least #2) pretty soon.
