Stand-off with Chinese journalist ‘disappeared as soon as it appeared’ in the first place

Published on June 28, 2020 by

Sky News host Paul Murray says one would hope the press gallery journalists being filmed by a woman who claimed to be from a Chinese state news organisation would be “more curious than they seem to be”.

A bizarre standoff was caught on camera at the Prime Minister’s media conference in Canberra after a Chinese journalist demanded a camera operator stop filming her.

The woman, who reportedly works for a Chinese state-owned media organisation, confronted the SBS crew after she noticed they were filming in her direction.

She is, by all reports, not a permanent member of the press gallery which raises questions as to who signed her in, as all non-members of the press gallery cannot easily access the area in which the exchange occurred.
