Seven West Media are using the big stick of the law to bully, harass and intimidate former female staff members into silence about what really happens at Seven West Media and also defame them with allegations that are nothing but lies by Seven’s management.
But the women, Amber Harrison, Amy Taeuber and Talitha Cummins are standing their ground and taking the fight to Seven West Media and their grubby directors, management and lawyers.
What is obvious is when you investigate what is happening at Seven West Media is that the sexual harassment and abuse is at epidemic proportions and the main perpetrators are senior management at the highest level. It is being conducted by management, facilitated with shareholder’s money and covered up at board level.
Amber Harrison isn’t the only woman taking on Seven West Media legally at the moment and being given the legal run around by Seven West Media. So, let’s look at two other women first and then we will look at the explosive unchallenged evidence that Amber Harrison has published in the last few days which puts Kerry Stokes right at the centre of the scandal and further evidence of Tim Worner’s drug use and another sexual harassment complaint against Mr Worner swept under the carpet.
Amy Taeuber and Sophie Taeuber
After making a complaint of sexual harassment, against Channel 7 journalist Rodney Lohse in March 2016, Amy Taeuber who worked full-time as a journalist for Seven in Adelaide was sacked for “breaching internet policy” only a few weeks after her sexual harassment complaint was swept under the carpet. Amy’s sister Sophie who also worked at Seven as a freelance journalist was also forced out in a stock standard constructive dismissal as the work quickly dried up after the sexual harassment complaint was made.
Amy was sacked in July 2016 and not long after instituted proceedings against Seven. It is my understanding that Seven have not filed any evidence to justify the termination but only filed the termination letter which proves nothing. This is in breach of two court orders to file their defence. Corruptly dragging out proceedings is Seven’s specialty but the longer it goes on the more it helps prove Amber Harrison’s “War of Law” allegations against Seven.

Channel 7 orchestrated another obvious case of constructive dismissal against Talitha Cummins. It was reported in January this year that Seven changed her role and the time of work that made it impossible for a new mother to be able to manage which forced her out of a job at Seven.
WEEKEND Sunrise newsreader Talitha Cummins is taking on Channel 7 for unfair dismissal, claiming she was sacked from the role while on maternity leave.
Ms Cummins claims that soon after her first child, Oliver was born, the network told her she would not be returning to the role she had held for three years after her contract expired.
It came as the 36-year-old was in the midst of promoting a hugely popular episode of ABC-TV’s Australian Story, which revealed her battle with alcoholism and detailed her four year sobriety.
The Daily Telegraph reports Seven News chief Craig McPherson phoned Ms Cummins nine weeks after the birth of her son to tell her she was no longer under contract.
She had expected to return to her weekend newsreading role but was offered a weekday 5am slot instead. (Click here to read more)
I wonder who at Seven decided to run the constructive dismissal strategy to get rid of Talitha Cummins?
Amber Harrison – Seven have had plenty of opportunity but have not denied any of the allegations that Amber Harrison has made
Seven West Media are doing their best to blame Amber Harrison for everything but as the evidence shows below Seven’s CEO Tim Worner has had other complaints made against him and News Corp have reported that there are at least seven women Tim Worner is alleged to have had affairs with and used company funds to facilitate.
Amber Harrison has published evidence on her Twitter account in the last few days that shows Seven’s Chairman Kerry Stokes used shareholder’s funds and personally negotiated a $100,000 bribe in 2014. If that is the case then Stokes would have also had oversight of the ultimate blackmail of Amber Harrison.
Undisputed evidence that Kerry Stokes was at the heart of the corruption
It must be remembered that Kerry Stokes and Ryan Stokes are themselves known for having multiple sexual relationship with women at Channel 7. They must think Tim Worner’s conduct is part and parcel of doing the CEO’s job or maybe it is part of the fringe benefits that Kerry and Ryan think it is OK for Tim Worner to indulge in.

Seven using the full force of the law against me and other media
Seven West Media management and the Directors, including former Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett, are lining up to attack Amber Harrison and trying to blame her for everything. But how do they explain the clear pattern of Seven abusing women and their legal rights such as with the Taeuber sisters and Talitha Cummins and then going on a War of Law, as Amber Harrison describes it, trying to deny them their rights even further and corruptly dragging out legal proceedings.
A lot of people who follow this website have been denied justice but something as simple as setting up a Twitter account such as Amber Harrison can help you fight back or you could go one step further and set up a website or Facebook page.
The War of Law is used by other companies as well but Seven West Media seem to have refined it to a new art form. Almost everyday new evidence is being published showing what the Seven West Media Board of Directors have been concealing from shareholders and failing to take action on as the Seven West Board already have copies of the evidence. Something will have to give somewhere in the not too distant future otherwise it will be a very painful and costly battle for Seven’s shareholders.
As regular readers know I named Samantha Armytage and Rebecca Gibney in an article as 2 of the 4 women named by Amber Harrison as also having had a sexual relationship with Seven CEO Tim Worner in her complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission. Armytage and Gibney then sued me for defamation in a frivolous and vexatious case and had a suppression order banning naming them in the Seven sex scandal. They have now also instituted contempt proceedings against me because I have continued to name them on this website in breach of the dodgy court order they obtained. This is the second times Stokes has instituted contempt proceedings against me, the first being in 2014. (Click here to read more)
I have no doubt the whole proceedings is being paid for by Seven West Media on Kerry Stokes’ instructions and is part of the War of Law strategy to close the whole story down. This is on top of the contempt proceedings being run by the court which I wrote about a few days ago. (Click here to read the article). For me it is a free speech issue and I will be standing my ground and fighting.
