    Yes but people treat it as a truth handed down from a higher power.

    Yes, it is. However it's basically representative of the entire publication's ethos and where they want to exert any community influence. Can be powerful in the right/wrong hands.

    I see his comments as a last ditch effort from someone who is clearly not quite right upstairs trying desperately to maintain some relevance and credibility in a narrative that has moved past him and dismissed him for what he is, a lying meddling sociopath hell bent on pushing some antiquated view of anti-smoking utopia on the world. Abstinence Uber Alles.
    Thats a great description!

    He loves the attention.
    Why he is constantly asked for his opinion when there are much more qualified people available is very strange,

    Probably because they know it is contraversial and publishing it sells papers/gets links clicked. Never let the truth get in the way, that shit never sells.

    Presenting something as an editorial when it's actually just an opinion piece.
    Media are to blame for a lot of the problems, they specialise in spreading misinformation. If they ever bothered to do their research I might have some respect for them.
    Following the links on that 'so called' editorial takes you straight to SC's site. hmmmm...no editors name to the editorial? I wonder who could've been behind it.

    Sounds like another SC article exploit to me, but this why I'd prefer BT to stay out of this. I don't trust them and neither does anyone else it seems. We really don't need them at this stage at least. They are just making things worse.

    I don't know about this being "lazy media" so much, it appears much more co-ordinated than that. I did read somewhere that Big Pharma considers liquid nicotine to be "their turf", and would fight tooth and nail to keep it that way.

    Blah blah - so freakin what if phillip morris is trying to do the whole harm reduction vaping thing - Tobacco control including Simon Chapman has been endorsing and pushing some of big tobaccos products for years even when they dont work - like nicotine patches and areosoles (see last post on random news thread) and now suddenly when vaping comes from neither pharma or big tobacco it becomes a problem?


    Throw in other pharma and alternative bullshit like hypnotherapy - and anti depressants that are hawked as anti smoking pills because one of the side effects happens that a few people gave up smoking (who may have needed anti depressants in the first place and lets not forget to mention the deaths attributed to these pills )

    It suddenly seems that this whole crying about phillip morris becomes a bit mute- if not defunct and hypocritical
