The Australian reports Sydney doctor Joseph Ajaka has issued a legal concerns notice to Nine Entertainment over the media company’s widely ­pro­moted expose into the cosmetic surgery industry, which he says defamed him. That included the 60 Minutes episode which aired last week, as well as subsequent articles in SMH and The Age.

It’s not only strange, but also very worrying. The isolation and anxiety we endured because of COVID is having a lasting and unwanted effect on an increasing number of teenage girls all over the world, including Australia. It appears to have given them a kind of Tourette’s Syndrome. They have developed uncontrollable tics. Doctors don’t yet understand why this is happening, but they do recognise it is a very real mental health condition. And as Sarah Abo discovers, even more bizarrely, it seems that popular TikTok videos are playing an intriguing role in this new syndrome.

Sorry, I didn’t watch the promo with audio.

Amelia Adams will be joining 60 Minutes as a full time reporter later this year.


Is she “leaving” Nine News then?

9News Senior Correspondent Amelia Adams to join 60 Minutes


Award-winning Senior Correspondent Amelia Adams will join 60 Minutes as a full time reporter later this year.

Amelia has been a journalist for more than 20 years. This year she celebrated 13 years at the 9Network, the last four as Nine’s Senior International Correspondent in Europe and North America.

Amelia’s live reporting from the US Capitol during the January 6 insurrection saw her win two Kennedy Awards and a Walkley nomination. She has also reported from war zones in Ukraine and Iraq.

Amelia covered the volatile final year of Donald Trump’s presidency and led the 9News coverage of the unprecedented 2020 presidential election. She reported from the ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests and the ‘Make America Great Again’ rallies.

She was Nine’s London based Europe and Middle East Correspondent, reporting on Brexit, the fall of Theresa May and the 2019 UK election. In the Middle East, she covered the Turkish incursion into Syria and the US assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. She has reported directly from crisis zones around the world including the Fukushima nuclear disaster and the Christchurch earthquake.

Amelia Adams said:

“I grew up admiring the greats of Australian journalism telling extraordinary stories on 60 minutes. I’ve been privileged to learn from many of them during my years on the road, and am absolutely thrilled to be joining the team.”

Kirsty Thomson, Executive Producer of 60 Minutes said:

“I am thrilled Amelia is joining the team at 60 Minutes. Amelia is a formidable journalist and fearless correspondent. Her work in Ukraine earlier this year was a standout, as impactful and unforgettable as her extraordinary reporting from the US Capitol building during the January 6 insurrection last year. I look forward to Amelia continuing her amazing career at Australia’s most loved and most watched current affairs program”.

Darren Wick, National Director of News and Current Affairs at Nine said:

‘It’s been a privilege to watch Amelia’s progression at Nine, from her reporting in the Sydney newsroom to her award-winning coverage as a correspondent in many of the world’s hotspots. She’s an incredibly talented and driven reporter and has earned her place on 60 Minutes, alongside the country’s best journalists.”

Also this week:

When it comes to hospital care, many Australians believe going “private” easily beats going “public”. But now it might be time to think again. In a 60 MINUTES special report, the Today show’s Christine Ahern investigates the tragic case of 37-year-old Annie Moylan. She was 18 weeks pregnant with her second child when she developed a fever and went to the emergency department of a private hospital in Melbourne for treatment. The hospital was brand new, so she thought she’d receive the best care. But the series of terrible mistakes and failures that happened next was appalling. Annie didn’t get better – she and her unborn child died.
