    Surreal - iTV to be renamed TITV

    not too sure why, but this gave me a laugh

    iTV may be renamed TITV

    (BangkokPost.com)

    iTV might be renamed TITV, which stands for Thai Independent Television, to maintain its role as an independent broadcasting station, permanent secretary to the Prime Minister's Office Chullayuth Hiranyawisit said Wednesday.

    Mr Chullayuth refused to reveal the new management team of iTV but confirmed that all the team members would be representatives from the government sectors.

    PM's Office Minister Dhipawadee Meksawan, meanwhile, confirmed that former president of Mcot Plc Mingkwan Sangsuwan, who resigned shortly after the Sep 19 coup to take responsibility for allowing the airing of a state of emergency declaration by ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, was not included in the list.

    The new team would comprise of six to seven members and none of them were from private sectors, Khunying Dhipawadee said.

    Is this a clever disguise designed to enable them to hide from the massive fine that is pending?

    "Who? Us? We're not iTV, we're TITV...."

    AC:

    I particularly liked:

    to maintain its role as an independent broadcasting station
    Mr Chullayuth refused to reveal the new management team of iTV but confirmed that all the team members would be representatives from the government sectors.
    I mean, how do they get away with this day-in-day-out!

    Perhaps they need to brush up on the concept of "independent".

    It's Orwellian.
    When a military junta takes control to rescue democracy, it's not surprising that state control of a TV station guarantees independence, either.

    Sounds like a Ponzi, and if TITV doesn't work out they can rename it TiT.
