Sometimes the news is not the real news. The Thai Foreign Ministry has written a letter to CNN detailing the massive inaccuracies in one of their reports, to read the letter: http://blog.nationmultimedia.com/ThaiTalk/2010/05/23/entry-1
In other CNN reporting on the situation here…..I was sitting in Bangkok, less than one city block away from where a CNN reporter was “live on location”, I was shocked at what was being reported. I was not seeing or hearing the same thing CNN was reporting about. I was following 8 different local and international journalists on twitter, their tweets didn’t match what CNN was reporting. The CNN reporter barely had any grasp of the situation, she was stating obvious fact about the conflict and completely unable to deliver any relevant insights.
I would expect most know not to take all that is reported as fact; I was amazed how the live reporting was distorted. I encourage you all to demand better fact checking and reporting from the media, please read the letter from the Thai Foreign Ministry to see details of the inaccuracies of one CNN report.
