Without any explanation, Thailand has blocked access to the online edition of the New York Post.
According to Thai Netizen Network (TNN), the website has been blocked since 23 February by the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society. The URL “nypost.com” currently loads the message “This website contains inappropriate content and information blocked by the Ministry of Digital Economy and Society.”
However, The Matter has found that access to the website via https protocol is available on some internet networks. The news section of the website also remains accessible to some networks.
Though the Ministry has not announced any reason for the censorship, The Matter asserts that this case is similar to that of the Daily Mail, which was blocked in Thailand after reporting stories about the royal family.
