  1. I agreed with you for the most part that those hatred messages don't do any good to the situation and the country. But why did you turned the issue from upset Thais against Foreign medias into nationalists against Foreigners? I don't get it.
    We don't hate foreigners. And there are many rational critiques regarding Dan Rivers' reports.
    I hope you have seen them by now. The reason many of the Thais bursted out their anger instead of pointing out what went wrong was because the points have been made and people are now acting irrationally and emotionally. I don't say that's good. I don't like those groups against foreign medias on FB. There are many other reports or articles on the same subjects that didn't make Thai people angry. Oh well, like you said. We are humans. We are free to think. I hope you still call Thailand home. That's very complimenting to hear.

  2. To Lost boy…why should we have to point what Dan river doing wrong as what we wrote he supposed to know. It doesn't mean that being the third country we cannot solve the problem in our own way. Culture plays an important role as always to solve the solution. I will not blame and against to anyone would have a right to think but c'mon he works with CNN and he has been trained to be professional journalist for many years. For the situation like this you need to take good care to report just only the truth for both in many areas and perspective. Try to separate between marketing and news. What we expect from CNN just reported the news for all areas and justify we, as reader/consumers have a sense to do it by our own. We did not hate the international press as we all know that we all live in the same globe. For anyone, who does something in an irrational then we need to at least act something.
