I mean, this just supports my previous point that the interview should not have won.
Anybody knows if there’s a pending trial, particularly if you will be involved in that trial, that you answer to any questions should be ‘no comment’. The interview should never have been nominated, it should have never won, and Lisa should never have given that speech.
She has a lot to answer for, and frankly, should know better.
It would seem Lisa was trying to make it all about herself and have her moment of glory.
You could forgive her if she gave an impromptu speech and slipped up, but she was reading a pre-written speech that she had checked and was told not to deliver.
To play the devils advocate here I feel like Lisa might have been off the cuff a bit and wanted to say something profound instead of just saying thanks but she didn’t really mention any more than what’s already been mentioned but this was more on a public scale cause the courts think all of Australia watch the Logies?
Wow. Who is this person? I absolutely loved her on Today and thought her and Karl would be the Today team for another 15/20 years but since leaving she’s just changed so much. I’ve never known her to be so outspoken and outraged. She’s way too close to the Brittany Higgins case. It’s night and day clear that she needs to step back.
In a meeting with the DPP, about her status as a witness, Wilkinson queried about her upcoming speech. They never listened or read it, only warned Lisa anything she says could be used in a bid for stay by the accused.
The judge’s concerns around Wilkinson was her status as a witness and how Higgins’s credibility was portrayed in the Logies speech. The criticism for the lack of use of “allegedly” was directed at Amanda Keller and Brendan Jones in discussing the matter on radio the following morning.
That’s not necessarily Jonesy & Amanda’s fault either. All of this comes back to The Project and Lisa Wilkinson. As a guest on their radio program, and as an advocate pioneering Brittany’s cause, and as a witness in the trial, Lisa should have made it clear what was off limits. It appears as though Lisa was more concerned with doing the publicity rounds rather than the impact she was having.
She was either oblivious to it or didn’t care. Or both.
Does anyone else get the feeling there was a lot of animosity towards Lisa because she was hired on a fat contract to work at an operation that has a history of regular cutbacks and staff redundancies?
I listened to Lisa’s speech and forgot that this man is yet to be found guilty. It wasn’t until afterwards that I remembered that this hasn’t gone to court yet. Tipping many people may have also thought the same way.
ACT Chief Justice Lucy McCallum told the court she had “robbed Peter to pay Paul” to ensure the trial would go ahead this year, listing October 4 as the new court date.
Director of Public Prosecutions Shane Drumgold revealed he had received a letter from Network Ten and Ms Wilkinson offering to take an undertaking to the ACT Supreme Court not to engage in any further commentary on Ms Higgins or the accused.
“That letter is useful,” he told the court.
Similar undertakings had also been sought from Australian Radio Network, which broadcasts Amanda and Jonsey on WSFM.
…Mr Drumgold said there were no grounds for him to seek an injunction against Ms Wilkinson, Amanda Kelleher and Brendan Jones.
The chief justice said injunctions could be sought through the court if the media outlets were not forthcoming.
Mr Drumgold said he had undertaken to request a number of authors including news.com.au‘s Samantha Maiden, The Sydney Morning Herald’s Niki Savva and Channel 10’s Peter van Onselen not to publish books that may touch on the matters before the trial before it has concluded.
The TVBlackbox article has more information on this incident. Apparently Wilkinson was parking in Sully’s car spot and even after being informed by management that it was Sully’s spot Lisa continued to park there.
This incident is when people at 10 started seeing Lisa in different light.
How extremely rude, disrespectful and arrogant of Lisa.
