Sansiri Flies Phuket Journos on Thank You Junkets to Japan, Hong Kong

Sunday, March 16, 2014
PHUKET: A large group of journalists and media representatives is due back on Phuket early this week after a five-day ''thank you'' junket to Japan, paid for by the property development company, Sansiri. The condo builders took another group of island journalists on a similar ''thank you'' trip to Hong Kong last year. The trips contrast with the New York Times policy against accepting travel or anything else of value from the subjects of coverage.

Editor Comment:

You not only can't think, you also can't read, Amazed in Thailand. At the end of each of our restaurant reviews is the paragraph: ''Phuketwan reviewers pay for their own meals. If we don't, we tell you.''

If we didn't pay for the meal, it wouldn't be a review. It would be a promotion. Ethics are clearly not something you understand.

There is free speech for you.

Editor Comment:

Free speech is for those who stand up and use their real names and speak about subjects they know and understand, FS. It's not for the no-name ignorant and prejudiced. An education is what they need.

Hypocracy all this moderation and hiding behind "real names" when the Editor remains nameless...

Did Phuketwan not receive an invite from Sansiri?

Sour grapes?

Editor Comment:

Your first comment here could be taken more seriously if you actually took the trouble to give a real name, Moderated. Sour grapes? No. Please refrain from attributing your own grubby view on life to us.The Sansiri publicity people know we're not into free lunches and other favors. Our ethics code can easily by read by you and others.

C'mon Ed, surely you can do better than that? But then again, perhaps not.

Criticize one for "hiding" when you do the same, that my friend is what is called hypocracy. Put your name to your comments and others may well follow.

Grubby view on life? That's a bit of a stretch, don't you think?

If the Sansiri PR people know your "ethics code" and don't invite you, why would you write this article?

How's the view up there on your horse?

Editor Comment:

We think our viewpoint is just fine, Moderated. We can tell right from wrong, we understand the need for transparency, and we know how to spell hypocrisy. We even get to choose our own friends.

My real name is in the emailadress. What makes you think you have a better education than me? You could be very wrong here.

Editor Comment:

This article is about a ''thank you'' trip to Japan for a group of journalists, FS. You and your newbie friend seem to be trying to hijack it. There is no such thing as free speech in any 'Comment' section online, especially for nameless individuals. This article is actually about ''disclosure.'' I suggest, as part of your continuing education, that you look up the word ''disclosure'' and learn what it means.
