Sharri Markson denies sexual relationship with 7 CEO Tim Worner but admits relationship with her boss at News Corp

News Corp journalist Sharri Markson, who says she broke the Barnaby Joyce affair, has denied having a sexual relationship with her former boss at Seven West Media, CEO Tim Worner, although she was caught telling a lie when questioned about it. But Ms Markson publicly admitted a few weeks ago to having a previous sexual relationship with Chris Dore who is her current boss at the News Corp owned The Sydney Telegraph.

The relevance of this is that Sharri Markson likes to take credit for breaking the story of former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce having an affair and baby with his staffer Vikki Campion and that government money / jobs were used to help facilitate the affair. The same question can and should be asked of Sharri Markson regarding the use of News Corp shareholder’s funds with her admitted affair with The Sydney Telegraph Editor Chris Dore.

But more importantly for Australian voters did Ms Markson’s own affair / employer play a part in her withholding the story about Barnaby Joyce until after the December 2017 New England by-election. And is Ms Markson withholding any other stories that are in the public interest? Have her promotions at News Corp been linked to her affair with Chris Dore or her withholding certain stories? It must be noted her employer recently received an extremely suspect $30 million federal government grant for the Foxtel division of News Corp:

The SMH reported:

News Corp is refusing to explain exactly how it will spend taxpayers’ money more than six months after the Turnbull government granted Foxtel $30 million.

While a funding agreement has been drawn up and signed, Foxtel and its parent company remain tight-lipped about which sports have benefited from the government handout. The broadcaster was eligible for the first instalment – worth $7.5 million – last month after the government signed off on its 2017-18 “strategic roadmap”. (Click here to read more)

Barnaby and his $150,000 payment off Seven CEO Tim Worner

Seven CEO Tim Worner who himself is a known adulterer, fraudster and cokehead has now decided it is a good idea to use Seven’s shareholders funds to in effect bribe Barnaby Joyce to tell all about his adulteress affair and fraudulent use of the public’s funds. As you would expect it has lit up social media with comments such as:

“Barnaby Joyce just SOLD his intimate family story to commercial TV for $150,000 & now demands taxpayer paid stress leave to be ‘left alone’? He needs to resign.” (Click here to see on Twitter)

CEO Tim Worner has confirmed his place as the lowest scum in Australia’s media. It was wrong of to accept the $150K but it was equally wrong of to offer it. They are effectively bribing public officials ” (Click here to see on Twitter)

Amber Harrison and Tim Worner

Make no mistake it is Seven Chairman Kerry Stokes who would have signed off on the $150,000 payment to Barnaby Joyce. 

Sharri Markson admits to a previous affair with her current boss Chris Dore.

The below video is part of a podcast that I believe was broadcast a couple of weeks ago by The Australian where Sharri Markson was interviewed by the Media Editor. (Click here for the full interview)

Surprise phone call from Sharri Markson about being named by Amber Harrison

In about April-May 2017 I received a very odd phone call from Sharri Markson. I had never spoken to her before or had any contact. But I had heard the rumours that she had sexual relationships with Seven CEO Tim Worner when she worked at Seven and Chris Dore who was her boss at News Corp’s The Sydney Telegraph.

At that point I was being sued for defamation for naming on my website an on-air TV host at Seven, an actress at Seven and 2 other women who were named as having had affairs with Seven CEO Tim Worner by Amber Harrison in her complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission. Ms Harrison, who also had an affair with Tim Worner, had emailed a copy of the compliant to hundreds of journalists in December 2016.

When Sharri Markson phoned me in about April-May 2017 she only wanted to know one thing during the phone call and that was if she was named in Amber Harrison’s complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission which I had published on my website. Sharri can obviously read and she would have known she was not named in Amber Harrison’s complaint. I have no doubt she was fishing to see what I knew about the rumours about her and Tim Worner.

A few weeks ago, I emailed Sharri some questions: I do not know if my questions were before or after Sharri made the public admission of her previous relationship with her current boss.

Subject: Media request

Dear Ms Sharri Markson

I will be publishing a story shortly in relation to Seven West Media CEO Tim Worner and have some questions:

  1. Can you confirm that you have had a sexual relationship with Tim Worner?
  2. Can you advise whether or not the Seven Directors knew of the relationship?
  3. Can you confirm whether or not Seven West Media shareholder’s funds were used to help facilitate the sexual relationship? E.g. Taxi fares, hotel rooms and cocaine etc.
  4. Can you advise if you benefited financially from the sexual relationship? E.g. Tim Worner was known to pay $10,000 bonuses to his mistresses which was confirmed by Amber Harrison.
  5. Can you confirm that the reason for you ringing me last year enquiring if I had seen your name on Amber Harrison’s legal complaint document to the Australian Human Rights Commission was because you were concerned that I was going to name you in an article?

Please respond by 5pm Friday the 27th April 2018.

Hi Sharri

It must have been someone who looked a lot like you then who showed up at court last year. 2 more quick questions:

  1. But you can confirm that you called me last year inquiring if I had seen your name on Amber Harrison’s legal complaint document to the Australian Human Rights Commission?
  2. And was that because you were concerned that I was going to name you in an article?

Absolutely not. I was pursuing the story, as you can read here:

Tim Worner: Seven West CEO’s disgruntled former lover reveals details of their affair

Sharri Markson, National Political Editor, The Daily Telegraph

Email end

Sharri’s claim that she was pursuing the story is garbage and a blatant lie. From what I can tell she had not written about the story for 3 or 4 months as her first and only story on the matter was December 2016. I have not been able to find any other stories on the Tim Worner / Amber Harrison affair written by Ms Markson. I was on the phone and she asked bugger all about the story or me being sued.

Ms Markson only wanted to know if she was named by Amber Harrison in her complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission which Sharri would have already known she wasn’t named. I believe she was fishing to see if I had heard the rumour about her sleeping with Seven CEO Tim Worner.

I also emailed questions to Seven CEO Tim Worner:

Mr Worner had his lawyer Richard Keegan respond and deny the allegations. Mr Keegan is hardly credible and is well-known for perjuring himself and trying to destroy evidence etc.

The Jane Does and the questions they won’t answer

As mentioned I am being sued by 4 women which is being paid for by Seven West Media on the instructions of chairman Kerry Stokes. I spent 4 months in jail last year for breaching a suppression order in the matter by naming 2 of the women. The matter is known as Jane Doe 1 & Ors v Shane Dowling.

None of the women will sign affidavits denying that they had affairs with Tim Worner or will they reply to the below questions.

The defamation case still has a long way to go as they are ducking and weaving and it is a typical SLAPP lawsuit.

Where to now for the old media

The old media players and their journalists are up to their necks in the bias and dodgy reporting. It is disgraceful for politicians to rip off the public’s money to help facilitate their sexual affairs and it is just as bad for employees and executives of public companies to rip off shareholders to help facilitate their sexual affairs which is what happened at Seven with CEO Tim Worner. Whether it is was happening with Sharri Markson I don’t know but at the very least given her admission’s with Chris Dore there are legitimate questions to ask.

    What a classy lot of individuals we have in this dirty little day in our lives…..

    Sharri is clever enough and certainly does not to need to take her knickers off to step up the ladder. Certainly as a no holds bar to entertain the boss is a different kettle of fish.. This type of sport has been around for over a thousand years. its a sport played by the masses not just Sharri and the team.

  4. Garry May 31, 2018 at 2:02 pm #

    I often wonder why Sharri and Kimberly are not on at the same time with Andrew B. Is there a connection ??

  5. Colin Sadlier May 31, 2018 at 5:21 pm #

    I just asked Sherri via your twitter account if she’d like to comment about your article and she immediately blocked me. Seems she is a little sensitive about the matter!!!!

    Have any members of the legal profession offered to assist you in investigating matters raised by you? I am interested in whether there are any lawyers who put Australia before their professional career, or whether they exhibit the cowardice common to their trade in not rocking the boat.

    Well I was personally very disappointed in Ms Markson.I sent her a copy of your excellent articles on Mr Turnbull and the issues raised about his relationship with a former employee as I had thought she would be outraged and demand answers from the Prime Minister.Alas no action.Why then the preoccupation with Barnaby Joyce?

  8. Bemused June 1, 2018 at 4:16 pm #

    Btw on 4 April 2018 according to -Telezkope which shows shows the absolutely most popular items on the web ranked by social shares this story on Mr Turnbull was the 26th most shared story on social media -beating stories on Trump’s tweets etc.What that does that say about the power of social media and also about the mainstream traditional media.I actually took a screenshot on the day .So whatever Sharri or indeed the Tele thinks people are getting their news and opinions from other sources and their platforms continue to decline in relevance.
