    Even the ABC this morning bought this line. As you say, it is disgracefully lazy reporting.

    It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to “spin” an issue. Those tight deadlines mean that journos will generally accept the way an issue is framed in a press release without thinking about it. And you can also count on most of them being quite innumerate, analytic ability not being in their selection criteria.

    I’ve responded to this post on the Lowy Institute’s blog:

    Thanks Sam. Would you care to offer any thoughts on why more 2008-specific questions weren’t also included?

    One of the only interesting results from the poll is that young people, aged 18-24 are most likely to be willing to pay more for electricity ‘if it helped solve climate change’.

    You mean, they’re willing to have their parents pay more for electricity.
