Sky News host Chris Kenny says highly disturbing footage has revealed ABC journalists and producers “coached” women what to say when they made allegations against actor Craig McLachlan. “The weekend documentary aired some footage from their interviews that gave us a disturbing insight into the intent of that journalism and the coaching the journalists and producers gave to the women making allegations against McLachlan,” Mr Kenny said.
Mr Kenny said there was encouragement to use the word “predatory”. “This is a highly disturbing look behind the scenes. Are these journalists asking questions or dictating answers?” Australian actor Craig McLachlan was found not guilty after being charged with seven counts of indecent assault and six counts of common assault by four women while performing in a Melbourne musical in 2014.
