Four Corners

Well-rounded people tend not to associate coverage of an alleged sexual assault with electioneering.

I would agree with you except this sexual assault is alleged to have happened in a Parliament House - any other location and a sexual assault would have nothing to do with electioneering.

By Sarah Ferguson.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) — the country’s media regulator — spent a year investigating Four Corners’ coverage of Fox News and its role in legitimising Donald Trump’s “big lie” that the 2020 US presidential election was stolen.

The overwhelming majority of issues raised by Fox were rejected by the regulator.

However, ACMA’s final report and its inflammatory press release raise questions about the regulator’s understanding of journalism.

Purity: An Education in Opus Dei - Season Premiere

This week Four Corners takes you inside the suburban schools connected to the secretive Opus Dei.

Through intimate personal testimonies, former students of the elite schools reflect on the practices they say has scarred them for life, going as far as to call the schools “hell on earth”.

Do No Harm: The doctors who break their sacred oath but are still allowed to practise

Monday 6 February 8:30 PM

This week Four Corners reveals Australia’s system of health regulation is allowing doctors who have groped, dated and even raped their patients to continue practising.

A six-month investigation into the medical complaints handling process has found hundreds of medical practitioners have been sanctioned by tribunals for sexual misconduct involving patients since 2010.

Many are still registered to work.

Reporter Emily Baker has forensically analysed over a decade’s worth of healthcare complaints and uncovered a complex and unwieldy system struggling to protect the public from sexual predators.

The program follows several disturbing cases – patients tell Baker harrowing stories of betrayal at the hands of those entrusted with their care – and the system that struggled to respond.

Baker investigates where the system is failing and asks how it could be improved.

Do No Harm reported by Emily Baker airs on Monday 6th February at 8.30pm. It is replayed on Tuesday 7th February at 11:30pm and Wednesday 8th February at 10am on ABC TV. It can also be seen on ABC NEWS channel on Tuesday at 9:15pm AEDT and Saturday at 8:10pm AEDT, or anytime on ABC iview and at abc.net.au/4corners.
