I’d thought at the time that it seemed a little odd for David Farrar to pass up a free hit regarding the Family First commissioned study on smacking. The headline in Granny Herald was: “Poll shows we’re still smacking our children”. What an opportunity!
Turns out though, that it was Farrar’s company, Curia, that did the polling.
The ODT, which is now online takes a closer look at the study, noting:
Prominent pro-smacking lobby group employs prominent pro-smacking “activist” to provide market research designed to emphasise a statistically validated message? In today’s spin-spun world, that’s probably par for the course.
