Foreign media slammed for pursuit of Wild Boars boys

ABC News interviews one of the Wild Boars boys

 

Justice deputy permanent secretary Thawatchai Thaikhieu today expressed disappointment at the conduct of some foreign journalists who defied advice of psychiatrists and child welfare officials against interviewing the young members of the Wild Boars soccer team after they were discharged from the hospital.

 

“Some foreign media have  acted below the professional standard which is something regrettable and unforgivable,” wrote Mr Thawatchai in his Facebook page.  He was apparently responding to an interview that a correspondent of ABC News had with one of the young survivors from Tham Luang cave.

 

The interview created an uproar on the Thai social media after it was aired last night, prompting calls for Thai authorities to take action against the American journalist.

So he conducted this interview before or after the one-time press conference?

'An uproar on Thai social media'.  Is that supposed to be significant? And if so, why?

God forbid that the precious and fragile kids will be interviewed by a foreign media, this is what media do, including Thai media, and for the boys have been released home being found able to resume normal life, i don't see what's the problem here apart from a guy who's got his nose out of joint for some inexplicable reason...

Yes, let's have a tame press who can only report on things approved by the authorities, with their stories censored by one of the 1,700 generals. In fact, kick out all foreign journalists, including those who work for the Bangkok Post, The Nation, Thai PBS etc. Ahhh, stuff it! Let's just kick out all foreigners and be done with it.

It is called respect! These youngsters have been through a terrible ordeal and trauma and deserve to be left alone to resume their lives, without the intrusion of the media. Show some dignity and allow individuals the freedom to enjoy their personal space and move on!

The Press, both nationally and internationally all have a reputation for being vultures for a very good reason, they are. Hardly surprising this has happened and the only thing that will amaze me is if it is the last time it happens. Especially if the family got paid for it, we can expect more soon.

oh dear can't vet the questions by the nasty foreigners who are probably giving them a few baht for an interview. Nobody has to agree to any interviews it's should be left up to the families, not anybody else.

"foreign media have  acted below the professional standard which is something regrettable and unforgivable,” wrote Mr Thawatchai .. but it is common and indicative of the ethics of journalism. please send them far away along with the domestic journalist.

Despite some of the sniping reviews, think for the boys welfare, media should back off & show some respect. 

Give the boys time to resume there normal lives again. Will be difficult enough, without the intrusion of media hacks, trying to get a story that will be cut & sliced to suit media producers purposes, i.e self promoting interest, nothing to do with boys or coach!!
