No More Creampuff Journalism

I was spending some vacation time in Phnom Penh when I picked up your paper and read

the "interview" with Khieu Samphan. What's going on? This guy is a mass

murderer and is single-handedly blocking a U.S. $2 billion international peace effort.

Yet your "reporter" Nate Thayer treats Samphan like he was some kind of

elder statesman, asking him what he thinks of the current political situation. Why

didn't he ask him what it feels like to kill 1,000,000 Cambodians? I've read PR handouts

that hit harder than this piece of marshmallow.

Do your readers a favor-next time you interview the Khmer Rouge, send a real professional

reporter-not a cream puff like this Thayer guy.
