The Daily News has condemned the M79 grenade attack on its headquarters Thursday night, saying threatening media was the same as threatening the people.
In a statement issued today, the paper described the action as outrageously violent. “The attack threatened the media organisation’s rights to perform its duty, which would lead to a blockage in providing fair and accurate news to the Thai people.
“During this conflict, we will perform our duty as a media outlet to the full for the benefit the country and the people,” the Daily News affirmed.
It also called for those involved in the attack to stop violent action and respect individual rights, while also understanding the media's duty to provide factual information..
