Media War

exposing media bias in Thailand

GMO seeds & other things are spreading in Thailand

Industrialization is changing the dynamics of the global seeds industry…  agricultural

sector is changing hands, although slowly, from the farmers to the seed giants

Already  second  day  I’ve watched  on local Thai  TV  some news  reports,  first by Ch.3  then  by TPBS,  when  they  give  away rice  seeds  to farmers  for FREE. Continue reading

Floods help to pave the way for GMO rice seeds?

Problem-Reaction-Solution

Old yet sure formula by

Roman Emperor Diocletian

of how to control the masses

 

I couldn’t  help it, but decided  to come  out from  my  already too prolonged slumber. Because  as  I can see, there is  a  lack  of coverage  of this  issue  in the  Thai Mainstream  Media. Or even rather opposite:  consistent campaign to  support the efforts by government and  big local and transnational  corporations  to  take under total  control the  rice  production  in Thailand  through  pushing  forward GMO  seeds… Continue reading

“Folk media” Vs Social media

while twitter is important, there are larger

world out there that one needs to talk to

The above epigraph is a quintessence of the main subject of this post, which in other words is: all the statistics about social networks as Facebook as well as any other internet activities do NOT reflect the REALITY of political alignment.

role of different Media in Bangkok war – Updated on Apr 18

There are lies, damn lies, and The Nation

from Twitter

Can you post this rubbish elsewhere?

– Thanong (Nation’s editor) in reply to critical comment on his blog

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong

– Voltaire

Humans have a natural proclivity to want what they cannot have.

(quote from: “Why Banning Social Media Often Backfires” )

This is an attempt  to provide a comparison of 3 main kinds of Media in their coverage of  current events in Thailand:  Thai MSM (mainstream media),  foreign Media and “alternative Media” (blogs, forums, social networks). of course I am sure there are many people who could do a much better job than me in this – I don’t pretend being any sort of a specialist, merely trying to  share  my own thoughts and what I have  seen so far  in this regard.

Apr 10 Updated: Role of Thai MSM in social unrest; govt curbs alternative media

Abhisit has succeeded in … making himself  look like a dictator ...

– Pravit Rojanaphruk ( Abhisit’s Dictatorial Face Revealed )

The government has gone fully fascist now

– commentator on Thai blog

The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies… Disinformation … makes

us vulnerable to fear, misunderstanding, and doubt, all things that lead to destruction…

Giordano Bruno (Disinformation Tactics)

Only with the help of Twitter yesterday were

non-Thai speakers able to find out what was going on

Richard Barrow


Thai “Democrat” government declares an Emergency situation in Bangkok and once again curbs more ALL Media (as if it wasn’t already under total control)

Is “Silent Majority” really a majority & why it is silent?

There are three kinds of lies:

lies, damned lies, and statistics

Mark Twain

Fresh example of  a typical  logical syllogism in Thai Media  from Bangkok Post :

The silent majority in Bangkok has finally awoken and started to speak up in the wake of the latest round of red shirt protestsA smaller rally by the so-called silent majority against the red shirt protest, attended by a few hundred people, took place the following day in front of King Rama IX Park

another fresh example :  Chula Network urges silent forces to a show of strength on 9 April

(Chula Network – means academics of Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok)

Previously I’ve already tried to expose some “Fallacies used in Thai media and by academics” because I was just too appalled by their shameless blatancy.

Today I’ll try to debunk  another  BS, from a category of  logical fallacies, shamelessly  and EXCESSIVELY employed by Thai Media :  phrase  “silent majority“.

call for “facts checking” and truth finding in Thai MSM

previously we’ve  already mentioned about the “facts checking” (or rather the ABSENCE  of it) by Thai MSM  in regards to the matter of whether PM Abhisit was in the car when protesters allegedly attacked it or not. Abhisit and  most of Thai MSM  lately deny Jatuporn’s claim that  Abhisit wasn’t in the car and the whole “attack” was a very well set up show by gov. and army.  although  on Apr 12 there were several articles with reference to Thai PBS (TV channel)  which plainly and clearly said that he left  the site well before the incident.

now in this regard there has been some sort of development.  apparently there is some progress in Thai media after all  –  Thai reporters call for “facts checking” !
