Some consistency please? Cash For Clunkers alternatives

I wonder how many people will stumble over this one today?

A rarely used word appears in today’s AAP stories about Australian ambassadors and Chinese gas deals.

While Chinese state media has said little about the 50 billion Gorgon gas deal .. an editorial in the China Daily newspaper claims Australia’s sinophobic politicians are leading an anti-China chorus.

Sinophobia is the fear of China and the Chinese. It is effectively a version of xenophobia directed specifically at China. I wonder how many people today, when they read that, will think the journalist responsible for the story is actually talking about xenophobia?
