I know that the Lounge is for off rail topics but do we really need to know about Don Burke and his alleged antics in this regard?

Across radio this morning about alleged sexual harassment.  Are we going to see a steady stream of people making accusations of others well into the future?  The radio item stated he was hard work and the allegations may relate to the sacking of some of his staff making it an ambit claim?

I'm surprised it took this long, but I knew that we would eventually find out why Nine dropped Burke's Backyard without warning.

I had heard that Bourke was difficult to work with and was fairly blunt with others. Maybe some snowflake got upset when he yelled at them.

We seem to live in a world where it is very easy to make accusations about someone when you are unhappy and maybe not have all the proof?  Most likely right some snowflake got dumped and got upset?

Yes; at the moment he is presumed innocent. At the very least, there may be no fire but there's a hell of a lot of smoke.

Nice of you to stick up for men's right to do what they like, and make sure that some female cops the blame.
In today's Age there were two former Channel Nine executives openly condemning his alleged antics, and numerous female former co-workers accusing him. I suggest you give up shooting from the lip.

Note the investigative journalist behind the article... Kate Mc Clymont.

One of the best.

She had the gonads to take on Eddie Obied.

Looks like Burke's lawyers haven't managed to get an injunction against the story on 7.30 tonight, they've had to set up a hard-hitting interview with Tracey Grimshaw on A Current Affair to get in first.

She is a very good Journo, this afternoon on the Ben Fordham show, she said she has been investigating this for a couple of weeks now, so clearly something is going on

What a Burke and is Don is not good! The last part is a play on a certain smallgoods manufacturer's slogan and is sarcasm!

Many?  I am sure he is a rat but is he a sexual rat?

Yes MANY Do try living in the REAL world and listening to what is said on the various NEWS...Not fake or garbage news that you post But that REAL stuff from ABC CH7 ETC,Several MEN have also claimed harassment from the grub as well as several women claiming to be groped.
  Carnot Minister for Railways

Given how narcissistic the entertainment industry is, I'm not at all shocked by the allegations.  

It's blindingly obvious Don Burke is in damage control mode. Along with half the industry...

The whole thing sounds like a rat Fest but the whole industry is so far up each other I am eating to find out what really happened.

No doubt he is a tyrant and a power hungry out of control power trip guy and thinks he can do anything.

It sounds like he is a bully in the very least and an harasser at the worst.  I remain open minded for those people who have allegedly been assaulted to make submissions to the police and we will wait to see if charges are laid.
  Carnot Minister for Railways

With this morning's revelations of Don's appalling harassment of Susie O'Neill, he doesn't have much of a defense now.  His reputation is shot to pieces and deservedly so.

ABC Is reporting over the ONeill incident

O'Neill has told Fairfax media she was in her Brisbane home for an interview with Burke and eight male crew members ahead of the Sydney Olympics in 2000.

As she stood in front of a large flower painting created by her husband, Burke allegedly asked: "Is your c*** as big as that?" The eight-time Olympic medallist said she was "flabbergasted" by Burke's "crude and belittling" remarks, and told her manager at the time, Nick Cummins.

Burke was invited to appear on 7:30 but went running to ACA. I shake my head seeing Tracy Grimshaw hosting that crass program. At least not all journalists sell their soul. Sounds like there’s more to come.

"Journalist Tracey Spicer said she had a list of other high-profile names in the media and entertainment industry who were likely to face similar accusations...

"I expected I'd get a handful or a couple of dozen of women responding. To this day 470 people have come forward, 95 per cent of them women," she said."

Sorry David you have said the exact opposite of what you intended to say:

'Don Burke has alleged sexual harassment claims'

It should read something like:

'Don Burke faces alleged sexual harassment claims'
