Australia: Outrage after PM "bullies" female journalist by challenging her to back up accusations
Link here. Excerpt:
'The female journalist asked the PM if he trusted the state government, which she said had been "proven to be corrupt".
Abbott reacted angrily to the question, lecturing the woman who asked it and suggesting she "withdraw".
"That is an entirely unjustified smear," Mr Abbott said.
"Let me not mince my words madam. An entirely unjustified smear. Frankly I think you should withdraw that and apologise because there is no evidence whatsoever."
In an odd reversal of roles the PM then challenged the reporter to produce evidence to support her claim.
Journalist Stephen Mayne questioned the PM's aggressive response on Twitter.
"What on earth is Tony Abbott doing going the knuckle like that against a female reporter in Western Sydney? Stop morally lecturing the media," he wrote.
