It would all be funny if it weren’t so serious.

The anti-government propaganda machine known as The Bangkok Post, which poses as a newspaper, has come out against a pro-government rally. This after praising, encouraging, advertising and publicizing each and every anti-government demonstration.

Here is a quote from their lead editorial:

Mr (Prime Minister) Thaksin’s decision to rally not only further hammers down confidence, it is divisive, confrontational and could lead to disastrous results.

(I would link to this but the links disappear very quickly.)

So I guess they are implying that the demonstrations they helped organize against the government were the opposite of those things.

The editors are not stupid, they are just childlike. They think their readers are stupid.

Have you ever seen such disrespect toward readers?

The local currency strengthened even more today. The exchange rate, for me, is as bad as I have ever seen it.
