Today, Khaosod English announced its disbandment after 8 years of operations. It is a sad day for English-language journalism in Thailand.
For years, Khaosod English stood alone with Prachathai as the voice of liberalism in an increasingly government-influenced conservative space. The work that they have done since their founding in 2013 have been invaluable and is a testament to the fine men and women who work at the organization.
While the news that no staff will be let go is immensely positive, it is a sad day to see the demise of a cherished competitor. The fine journalists at KSE pushed us each and every day to be better, to strive for better journalism and to be accountable to the truth and our readers.
We wish the staff of KSE nothing but the best and look forward too seeing their continued coverage in other mediums under the Matichon Umbrella.
