Peta Credlin apologises to Kevin Rudd over false data harvesting claims – video

Sky News commentator Peta Credlin has apologised on air to the Australian former prime minister Kevin Rudd for saying his petition calling for a royal commission into the Rupert Murdoch media was a “data harvesting exercise”.

After Rudd’s petition reached a historic high of half a million signatures in November, Credlin accused him of gathering email addresses to “bombard people with hard-left propaganda and urge them to boycott the Murdoch media”. The former Labor prime minister immediately called for Credlin, a former chief of staff to Tony Abbott, to apologise “for her lies” but she did not withdraw them.
