exposing media bias in Thailand

YouTube and internet’s role in current politics


Thai media acknowledge the role of internet and its certain features as YouTube :  “Politics in the age of YouTube

“The names of those involved [in scandals] are never revealed in newspapers, on TV or on radio, but in recent times the potential for humiliation has been dramatically increased as faces and sexual behaviours are starkly exposed on DVD or the internet, fanning up gossipandgiggles throughout society…”

I would add that  youtube, different on-line radio and TV stations, blogs and websites  expose not only sexual scandals, but much more than that.

and definetely Thai MSM  already feel the impact.
