The Economist as dissident publication

4 07 2009

Recently, an email went out to print subscribers of The Economist in Thailand, notifying subscribers that they would not be receiving the print edition of the magazine.

The email read: “Dear Subscriber, We deeply regret to inform you that our distributors in Thailand have decided not to deliver the July 4th issues of The Economist in light of our coverage relating to the lèse majesté law. We appreciate your continued patience and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We will be extending your subscription by one week to cover this missed issue.”

The article in question may be this one, posted online as well: 2 July 2009, “Treason in cyberspace”
