    This media bribery case have already destroyed the creditability and accountibility of Thai media even though they cannot find the strong evidences that lead to the arrest of the journalists, and members of the political party …

    No wonder, the social media and weblogs that function as the people jornalists are growing as the media refuse to do the right things.

    Just a loose cannon’s action that brought back anti-Thaksin demonstrators … and more will follow soon after the dire consequence of 300-Baht daily wages + 15000 Baht salary whcih is going to cause massive layoffs + cutting down the bonus, welfares, pension funds to finance 300-Baht daily wages + 15000 Baht salary scheme.

    Now, many Thai nettizens ask how many Thailanders will be left – those buffaloes in human forms not counted – if they have a chance to live in exile abroad since they disagree with PT men’s populist policies.
