‘Fake news shill’: Republican Kari Lake slams Australian reporter during leaked interview
White House grilled on Biden’s voicemail to Hunter
Kari Lake, a Republican running for governor of Arizona, has savaged the conduct of veteran Australian journalist Liam Bartlett during a fiery video leaked online.
Ms Lake walked out of the interview in protest, accusing the Australian journalist of being biased and a “joke.”
Mr Bartlett, who works for current affairs program 60 Minutes, conducted the fiery interview via Zoom.
The 25-minute interview started respectfully enough before Mr Bartlett accused the Trump-backed Republican of xenophobia and perpetuating conspiracy theories.
