I wrote my first ever letter to the editor on Sunday. I was reading the Sydney Morning Herald online and it had an article from the Sun Herald on a researcher's recommendation on immunisation of children against influenza.

The only quote on the research other than the researcher was from the Australian Vaccination Network basically saying it was a bad idea.

What irritated me enough to actually write about was that the article did not say that the Australian Vaccination Network is a lobby group for people who disapprove of vaccination and the article did not say mention this important background information.

Of course the letter wasn't published - but I feel so much better that I wrote complaining about it.
