In the afternoon, May 14, Zhangmeng, a female reporter of CCTV Bangkok Station, closely witnessed the conflict between Thai army and “red shirts” protesters, along with her local cameraman. Then, the precious and unique news footage that they obtained has been timely broadcast on CCTV News Channel, CCTV International (Chinese) and CCTV News Channel (English). On the shooting scene, the local cameraman got a scratch on his face while dodging a stray bullet, which made him one of the three wounded journalists from the international media during the conflict on that day.

Major news websites in China have been giving out good remarks on Zhangmeng’s performance in Bangkok。Some remarks from the netizens: “What impressed and touched me most is the CCTV journalists crawling on the ground while reporting the event—they still kept their minds sharp and stayed calm in such a dangerous situation and continued their work.” Some Chinese netizens think that such kind of events demonstrates the improvement of CCTV’s capability of reporting international events.
