Censorship: Is it working?

One of the first things that took place during last years coup was the immediate censorship of all media, especially the foreign satellite feeds. Tonights interview with ousted Prime Minster Thaksin was totally censored by the powers that be.

As of 12:36am, CNN is totally inaccessible from most ISP’s based in Thailand.

The Council for National Security (CNS) has demanded that all domestic broadcasters, both television and radio, stop giving coverage to anything related to Thaksin.

Incidentally, Thaksin promised to quit politics and return to civilian life. “No, enough is enough,” Thaksin said in answer to a question about whether he planned another shot at power if he is ever allowed back to his home country.

    Wouldn’t matter too much if they blocked CNN/BBC though… Thaksin’s powerbase is with the rural communities.
