Uproar over Thai TV show cancellation

Many suspect popular soap opera was pulled from air after its content became too sensitive for the government.

    A television channel's decision to cancel a popular soap opera has sparked a public uproar in Thailand.

    Channel 3 says they cancelled the final episode of the show because it was too violent.

    But many suspect that Nua Mek, a drama show that revolved around black magic and corrupt politicians, was pulled from air due to political interference after the content became too sensitive for the government.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
