ABC News - Demetriou plays down latest Newman sexism row http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/08/01/2321588.htm
After the show’s panel watched Ms Wriedt deliver a recorded message about a new sponsorship deal for a proposed Tasmanian AFL team, Newman said: “It would be worthy of coming on her.”
Nope ABC, that’s a misquote - he said “It would be worth coming on her.”
Rude but a pun of sorts after panellists had talked of her coming on the show.
Jeez - childish stuff for govt journos on $95,000 per annum.
