Censored tape is on YouTube now

TV Burapa, the producer of Khon Khon Khon, has posted its censored interview tape on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyvvrnSwRj8.



The taped interview with environmentalist Sasin Chalermlarp, who is also the secretary-general of the Sueb Nakhasathien Foundation and a leader of the anti-Mae Wong Dam movement, was scheduled to air on Saturday September 28. It was censored.

On its Facebook page, TV Burapa said that ahead of the broadcasting date, Channel 9 asked for additional interviews for a balance. The company was also urged to cut some parts considered provocative. It said the tape was amended accordingly, but in the way that it did not tarnish the company’s standpoint. However, the edited tape could not win the approval.

The company thus posted the tape on YouTube, urging viewers to judge if the tape was biased.

TV Burapa also said that it has no intention to cause division or launch an unfair attack against any party. The episode was meant to urge society to come up with peaceful and fair solutions, it said.
