  • Surely the issue is not Blanchett or Caton, it's whether an advertising campaign can persuade the public when the govt struggles to do so. #
  • @GrogsGamut And everyone lets their favourite actor tell them what to think about political issues? #
  • @GrogsGamut I'm so pleased you and I are the only ones not stupid enough to be swayed by our favourite actor in an advertisement. #
  • @Rubbachook So when was the last time your favourite film star changed your vote? #
  • @AshGhebranious It's an ad from a handful of lobby groups. So what? It's still down to the govt to do the political grunt work on this. #
  • @AshGhebranious Exactly. They have a political problem entirely of their making which has left the field open for Abbott. #
  • @Rubbachook Of course not, we're far too smart for that, aren't we? This is all just patronising nonsense. #
  • @AshGhebranious No, the process they determined on has only served to let them lose control of the political debate – again. #
  • Consider some supposedly successful political ads: It's Time, Turn on the Lights, Kennett as bull in a china shop, Kevin 07… (1/2) #
  • (2/2)… they tapped into a pre-existing mood/sentiment/doubt/hope etc. #
  • @Drag0nista Didn't Keating lose the next election after those Working Nation ads with Bill Hunter? #
  • @AshGhebranious Yes, and no piddly television ad is going to make any difference to their chances. #
  • @Drag0nista No, but I'm just saying the influence is over-stated. It's also a patronising view of how people behave. #
  • @prestontowers @Drag0nista Yes, but ads work best when they tap into pre-existing sentiment. #
  • .@NeilTLawrence @markatextor So tell us where we're wrong. I'm not proud – I like to learn from people who know things. #
  • @NeilTLawrence Spot on about what?! #
  • @NeilTLawrence Would you agree the govt's carbon tax policy is a political disaster area that no ad campaign can rectify? #
  • @markatextor Ok, I'm googling Rational Salience..! How do you see the carbon tax ad – too little, too late? Re-setting the agenda? #
  • @NeilTLawrence This ad today – or even a future govt campaign: who, if anyone, in your experience, would be persuaded by it? #
  • So much talk about media bias… try this from this morning's Sunrise team on "the people's ad": http://twaud.io/rSXb #
  • @littlemaths I suspect I doubled their figures by watching my IQ recording just now… #
  • @HillbillySkill I think O'Keefe must be the only openly pro-Labor host on commercial television. #
  • @kimworldwide They have to do what Labor always has to do: fight hard and better. #
  • @buckleup Sunrise weekend viewing figures 336,000 according to Crikey last week. #
  • @NeilMcMahon One swallow does not make a summer… #
  • @G_Parker Haven't watched tonight's yet. I can see why it got bad reviews but I quite enjoyed the first episode. #
  • @G_Parker Election night 1960. Flashbacks to Joe Kennedy sr's sacking by FDR, Joe jnr's death & JFK stepping up a notch with Dad. Wins. #
  • @G_Parker Need 280… JFK flirts, even on election night. RFK the brains behind the campaign. Joe snr also philanders with secretary. (!) #
  • @G_Parker Someone told me he dies at the end but I don't want to spoil it for you… #
  • Kenneth Davidson: Natural gas and new technology can wipe out dirty power alternatives. http://auspol.info/iLejN2 #
