Stringent media censorship in Thailand has again come under fire after a blogger scoffed at blurred out content in scenes from Japanese cartoons, or animes, broadcast by MCOT Channel 9.
The blogger wrote his posting in a Japanese news website on Aug 9, including in it a video clip and two images. The posting went viral and has been attracting attention from many online communities.
