    Great... another session of "we don't know enough" "it looks like smoking" "highly poisonous" "doesn't work"

    Won't someone Please think of the children!

    I could hope Auntie does a measured piece, looking at both sides of the story.... but I'm not holding my breath

    Bit of a shame really. 7.30 report I would of hoped was the last bastion of honest reporting. By the title it sounds like it's going to be the usual BS. Media is a sham, because of this I never watch telly. I get the shits way too easy.

    Just saw the lead in.... looks like the same old mis-information..... and they still haven't got the idea that BT is a late entry in the whole thing.... will see what happens

    edit - not too bad, but they're still pushing the Big Tobacco angle. If only they would point out that BT is late to the party.

    Chappy still rabbiting on about dual use.... Chappy, c'mon man - nearly all dedicated vapers DON'T DUAL USE!

    I just threw my two cents into the argument at the ABC News site article on the 7:30 story: E-cigarettes the new front in the smoking war for big tobacco companies targeting Australian smokers - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    I commented under the handle 'ucantbserious'...

    Cheers,

    Hmm the Health guy didnt seem to care about the health benefits with this but only seemed to care about big tobacco buying up some ecig brands, maybe he should stick to the health related matters. Oh he did mention how vapers still smoke as well (bullshit which is proven all over the net) but that was only so he could spin his big tobacco argument better. Maybe he wants a pay out by them? on some ill be quiet if you give me $$$.

    as usual the comments are more informative than the article. i hope Dr Chapman burns in hell. (not that i actually believe in hell, or the alternative fairy story)
