Thailand ranks 136th in the world press freedom index published by Reporters Without Borders earlier this year.  The group classified Thailand as being in a “difficult situation" under the new pro-military Palang Pacharat government, led by former military coup leader Prayuth Chan-ocha. Steve Sandford reports from Bangkok on what journalists and activists are saying about the pro-military government's policy toward the media.
