Calls to ban politicians selling stories

May 29, 2018

Barnaby Joyce’s National Party colleagues are calling for a ban on politicians receiving cash for media comment and say their former leader can no longer complain about a breach of privacy over revelations he had a baby with his former media adviser.

The Daily Telegraph reports, Australian Conservatives leader Cory Bernardi says he feels a “little uncomfortable” about Mr Joyce selling the story of his love affair with Vikki Campion for $150,000 to Channel Seven and it is not in the “best interest of the body politic.”

Senator Bernardi has told Ben Fordham on Sky News this is something he would not have done.
