    I have tried to write something about this for the last 15 minutes and I keep deleting it because I can't get my words out due to frustration. Not only frustration with Glantz but also the fact that they have pitted him against someone without "clean hands".

    Thanks for posting though Rose.

    People see e-cigarette advertisements on TV and think they are cigarette ads.

    I got a belly laugh out of that one! Either that's pure and blatant bullshit, or Americans are way stupider than we previously thought.

    GAWD, I couldn't even watch this piece of media effluent, how much shite can you squeeze into 5 minutes, Glantz must hold the world record, although I'm sure its a tight competition.

    I was sure I'd seen this video on youtube weeks or months ago? But the date says 'published on Dec 18th? Then I noticed it was uploaded by MOX News. Welcome this is MoxNews / CSPANJunkie / VotersThink / EarthToObama

    Talking about advertising, Glantz did that on purpose to rile the njoy guy because not only do njoy advertise heaps, they have appointed famous people as brand spokespersons which are right down his "normalising smoking, slippery slope, dual use" fear mongering. That's why I think it's so unfortunate when a guy like this ex surgeon general is now seen to not be impartial. This is exactly the same as us seeing a study that has been sponsored by BT or BP. It puts the Vaping cause on the back foot and doesn't really do it any good.

    I go with the head in the sand mindset. It seems every other day theres more of this re hashed propaganda out there. Save your effort for the real fight.

    Everyone's different, I prefer to be informed, (even though this sort of crappy propaganda is really annoying), more "know your enemy" , than head in the sand. I think its good to know what they are trying to push as an argument, as it makes it all the easier to cut them down

    Don't think you're gonna need the flame suit Rotten, well, not unless you are gonna be driving a race car
