Marks off Markson: Daily Telegraph accuses IA of printing ‘garbage’

SHARRI MARKSON is the national political editor for the Daily Telegraph.

She has won the prestigious 2018 Kennedy Prize for Journalist of the Year for her “scoop” in exposing Barnaby Joyce, in February this year, as the man who had impregnated his former staffer, Vikki Campion.

The only problem is that Markson was not the first person to reveal this truth.

As Bruce Haigh wrote in Independent Australia in August:

The problem is that she did not break the story of Barnaby Joyce’s affair or [the] pregnancy. Credit for revealing the affair goes to Serkan Ozturk, the editor of True Crime News Weekly on 24 October 2017. News of Joyce’s staffer’s pregnancy was broken three weeks later in Independent Australia, in a story by Sydney bureau chief Ross Jones on 19 November 2017.
