“You can say Sky News at night is a Liberal echo chamber,” Murray said. “I will wear that badge if you will also attribute that badge to others.”

It’s a candid admission, but Murray didn’t realise his comments would inadvertently be made public. During a commercial break on Paul Murray Live, he was shooting the breeze – and dropping copious F-bombs – with his guests, the Western Australian Labor MP Matt Keogh and the former New South Wales Liberal leader Kerry Chikarovski.

It was nothing unusual, except that someone left the microphone on and their five-minute chat was uploaded as part of the Paul Murray Live podcast. Until someone realised and took the entire episode down.
