Re: "Sukumpol frets over too much press liberty" (BP, March 28). Defence Minister Sukumpol Suwanatat worries about press freedom. Why? Isn't Thailand a democracy? 

ACM Sukumpol says foreign media outlets including CNN, which is based in the US, rarely attack the US government. He could have added NBC, CBS, The New York Times and many other news outlets to his list. They are all left-wing, and in the hip-pocket of the current left-wing White House.

If ACM Sukumpol would check a little closer, he would find Fox News does in fact take the US government to task on a daily basis, and rightfully so.
