Kom Chad Luek (Thai: คมชัดลึก; rtgs: Khom Chat Luek; literally "sharp, clear, deep") is a mass-circulation Thai-language daily newspaper launched in 2001, published in Bangkok, Thailand, by the Nation Multimedia Group. Its circulation is 900,000.
Kom Chad Luek became the target of mass protests after it printed an article on 24 March 2006 that omitted part of a quote by anti-government protest leader Sondhi Limthongkul, with the misquote suggesting Sondhi wanted King Bhumibol Adulyadej to abdicate, which was viewed as an insult to the king, or lèse majesté, which is a crime in Thailand.
The paper published a front-page apology on 30 March, begging forgiveness from the king. Protests in front of the newspaper's offices continued however. The paper's editor, Korkhet Chantalertlak, resigned in a show of responsibility, the chief news editor was reassigned, and the paper said it would suspend publication for a total of five days, from 31 March to 2 April and on 8-9 April.
