I have written two books about Thailand's notorious sex industry, but I am still shocked at how the country is portrayed so negatively by the media. I started to review some of the efforts by so-called "investigative" journalists. This blog looks at whether they assess the facts and tell a story, or draw a conclusion and search for a few snippets to support the argument.
I would like to take the discussion beyond Thailand, please share your thoughts.

This is a promotional video, so there is nothing to spark a rage against lazy journalists. It does, however, depict Thailand and it shows the country with which I am more familiar.
Well worth four and a half minutes out of your day - Watch here
