Rules on TV self-censorship needed
The clearer rule on self-censorship among TV stations is necessary following the decisions by Channel 3 and Thai PBS, said Supinya Klangnarong, a member of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission's broadcasting committee.
She will float the proposal to the broadcasting committee on Monday, when they are scheduled to consider Channel 3’s action for "Nuamek" series, she said.
The airing of Nuamek was abruptly suspended.
Supinya said the new rules are necessary given a similar action by Thai PBS, in abruptly ending the airing of the Friday’s episode of the "Tob Jote Prathet Thai" (Answering Thailand's Questions).
