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.
