Comment on Advocate: Getting it wrong on their big day by Erwin Chlanda.

Paul Lelliott, Posted May 26, 2017 at 4:24 pm and others:
Many thanks for your encouraging comments!
We have a readership of around 18,000 (we always publish current monthly figures from Google Analytics – see this page). It’s the best in town.
We have a searchable archive of around seven million words, reaching back to 1997. And we published, so far, just under 15,500 readers’ comments – many of them absolute treasures of information and analysis.
Kieran and I also have a clientele of media buyers in Australia and overseas we’ve been supplying for 30 years. But our hearts are in Alice.
We’re proud to be a forum for civilised debate. As for taking up the issues raised in our pages, well, you’ll have to talk to our leaders and those who elect them.
All the best, and – Paul – keep up your ambassadorship!
Erwin Chlanda, Editor.

Grog stats: No independent review
Re Vicki Gillick: On June 4 I approached the hospital, via its media liaison person, and the NT police, via its media section, for access to the raw data underpinning the alcohol control measures, on the condition that privacy is not breached. (Note the last paragraph of the report above.)
This would include such documents as police running sheets and emergency department individual admission records.
No doubt Ms Gillick has made similar requests in the interest of “evidence-based reforms and rigorous evaluations” to which she refers in her comment of May 29.
Our requests are still being considered by the hospital and the police.
We’re of course happy to collaborate with Ms Gillick in our quests for information about these issues.

Back to the future with Warren Snowdon
@ Rosalie Schultz: The appropriate fact check for me in this report was to ascertain Mr Snowdon’s position on the issue of gas and it is presented accurately. Google our newspaper for extensive coverage of both facts and opinion on gas issues, including the Pepper inquiry.
