Thailand’s Prime Minister Seems Like a Chill Dude

It's a tad unpleasant to be a reporter in Thailand.

Prayuth Chan-ocha, Thailand’s Prime Minister, is not a fan of the country’s media. One month after proclaiming that he could shut down every outlet if he wanted to, Chan-ocha doubled down.

According to Reuters, Chan-ocha — who took office after toppling Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra in a coup last year — explained to a group of reporters “You don’t have to support the government, but you should report the truth.”

When Chan-ocha was asked what he would do about those journalists who do not follow the government’s guidelines, he replied “We’ll probably just execute them.” Tough, but fair.
