    A very disheartening interview

    Richard Stubbs interviews Rob Moody Professor of Global Health from University of Melbourne and they both look down their noses at those awful vapers who will apparently provide a swirling vortex of a gateway that will suck a new generation of kiddies into the evils of tobacco. I don't even know which is worse the ignorance, misinformation or plain old smugness.

    30 seconds in, not even to anything about vaping, already too irritated at the tone to bother listening further.

    Absolutely disgusting.

    Add Rob Moody to the list of dangerous people that work against the public's health.

    HA!

    In the last few minutes, the whole interview becomes an ad for Champix, and letting people know to make sure they are in close contact with their doctor, because "those pills change your state of mind"!

    All three rolled into one. I think my head will explode if I have to listen to these oh so smug people anymore.

    Yeah, I would have liked to have rung up at that point and asked what do you mean Richard? You mean one of the side effects of this 'approved' drug is death? But hey, it's 'approved' so everything is cool then I guess.

    What about the poor vaper being thrown in to cop all that patronising. I mean the guy is trying to finish up his PHD (obviously he must be a stupid weak willed person with no ability to stick at anything...not) AND deal with a anxiety issue and they're reccomending CHAMPIX!!!

    ok, i haven't listened to the interview. but one thing. we shouldn't jump down peoples throats for simply being wrong. or misinformed. the expert there has no excuse. it's his job to be informed. richard stubbs, not so much. he's faced with someone he's been told is an expert, so is only going with the best information he has.

    It was the smugness of Richard Stubbs that really annoys. Now that smoking is no longer cool, its okay to bag smoking (and smokers) and anything related to smoking such as vaping. Anyone with an internet connection can inform themselves. Stubbs was not really seeking information of the so called expert, was merely looking for confirmation of his prejudices.

    I was going to say this earlier, but was too lazy. Then probably something about journalistic integrity and something about opinion equalling fact more and more and a bunch of other stuff...
