A former Channel 10 weather expert has intensified his attacks on Lisa Wilkinson, posting obscene words on her Twitter page about her vicious Logies speech.
‘Just accept the small F-ing and F off! Trophy !,’ Tim Bailey tweeted, referring to The controversial presenter of The Project.
And this time, Bailey has left his message on the social network Twitter, in contrast to his Tuesday night tweet, which he quickly removed.
In a previous comment, Bailey insulted his former colleague, calling him a ‘big head’, with news presenter Sandra Sully and Sunrise presenter Natalie Barr also joining the pile.
‘Hello Lisa, pull your head in,’ Bailey said in his previously deleted message. ‘I know this can be difficult, because it is a very big head. But please try. ‘
Lisa Wilkinson pictured delivering her Logies speech Sunday night, in which she thanked Brittany Higgins for sharing her story of alleged sexual harassment.
Fellow TV industry professionals have turned on Wilkinson as confusion from his famous Logies speech spread on Channel 10.
Wilkinson’s comments about Brittany Higgins prompted ACT Chief Justice Lucy McCallum to order a delay in the trial of a former political activist, Bruce Lehrmann.
That led to 10 long-time weather presenter Bailey calling Wilkinson Tuesday night, calling him ‘big head’, while news reporter Sandra Sully and Sunrise presenter Natalie Barr also joined the pile.
‘Hello Lisa, pull your head in,’ Bailey said in a message that has now been deleted. ‘I know this can be difficult, because it is a very big head. But please try. ‘
He added: ‘#LisaWilkinson # Logies2022 #carparkthief’.
Top 10 celebrity Sandra Sully also liked a tweet from show business reporter Peter Ford ignoring Wilkinson’s speech. The message said: ‘Such a great harm from Lisa Wilkinson… if only she would hold on to such nonsense as the paparazzi who followed her in Chapel St.’
Despite the violence, there were indications that Wilkinson was still denying the serious consequences of his actions, with the broadcaster liking a Twitter message that said his Logies’ comments had nothing to do with the defendant. If the court does not recognize the difference, it is part of the problem ‘.
Surprisingly, Wilkinson last year demanded discretion in commenting on the case.
“Mentioning the man on social media and giving a verdict could have serious consequences for any case,” he tweeted.
Former Channel 10 weather presenter Tim Bailey called Lisa Wilkinson a ‘big head’ in a tweet that has now been deleted.
Tim Bailey was photographed on November 9, 2017 in Sydney. In a Twitter post that has now been deleted, he told his former Channel 10 colleague, Lisa Wilkinson to ‘pull your head off’.
Aside from, Sunrise presenter Natalie Barr expressed distrust of the TV show on Wednesday, saying Seven usually runs a story with their lawyers before being aired.
‘You know, we have our lawyers, we always consult with them before putting a story on air, would it be that Channel 10 lawyers would intervene and defend this speech?’
REPORT FROM THE TEN NETWORK
‘Network 10 supports the decision of Chief Justice McCallum and fully supports Lisa Wilkinson.
‘Both Network 10 and Lisa Wilkinson are taking their legal responsibilities very seriously, including in the preparation and delivery of her speech delivered at the Logies event.
‘Given the progress of the case, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.’
Higgins Rape suspect Bruce Lehrmann was given a temporary stay in the ACT Supreme Court on Monday, after his lawyer said the court case would be ‘unacceptable’ following reports by Wilkinson’s speech.
Judge McCallum told the ACT Supreme Court that recent media coverage had condemned Lehrmann’s right to a fair hearing.
“The case has therefore attracted a high level of media attention … that although unusual, it is certainly serious,” he said on Tuesday.
‘Reporting in detail to the media about criminal allegations is not hooliganism itself.
‘The worst thing that can happen is to report to the media about such issues in a way that … affects the criminal case.’
Judge McCallum argues that although judges may be instructed to reduce prejudice, this case was different with Wilkinson being the chief witness.
There is no set date for the trial, but the judge said he wants it done this year, and the October list will probably give enough time for the broadcast to disappear.
Judge McCallum criticized Wilkinson’s speech, saying the line between litigation and conviction was ‘completely erased’ by what he said.
Natalie Barr (pictured left with her Sunrise colleague David Koch) visited Lisa Wilkinson and rival Channel 10 on Wednesday morning.
Wilkinson won Logie for his report on Ms. Higgins’ allegations that she was raped in Parliament.
“Yours sincerely, this speech did not need to be delivered,” Lehrmann’s attorney Steve Whybrow said.
Mr Whybrow filed a motion to stay Tuesday, following Wilkinson’s speech.
He said a temporary stay – basically, a delay – is the only way to allow a fair trial so that ‘bad publicity can disappear’.
“It is not possible in my submission for a case to be made under this circumstances at this time,” he said.

Judge McCallum criticized the media for reporting on Wilkinson’s speech.
“What worries me most about this recent round is that the distinction between litigation and conviction has been completely erased … Sunday and Monday,” he said.
‘The obvious basis of (Wilkinson’s speech) is to celebrate the truth of the story he has revealed.’
He added that Ms. Higgins’ claims were tied together in the public mind by the work of former Australian Best of the Year Grace Tame, despite one man being convicted in Ms. Tame’s case.
“Grace Tame was talking about her experience after the man was convicted and served a prison sentence,” Judge McCallum said.

“The key contribution of (Ms Tame) in the legal context was to say ‘the judges know what she did, the public knows what she did, but I can’t talk about it because of the law that forbids me from coming out’.
‘Miss Higgins is considered to be in the same unit. And he is not, ‘the judge said.
‘At the moment, he is not in the group. That’s what really bothers me about the final round. ‘
The crown had objected to a temporary stay, stating that the request did not indicate a serious risk to the jury which could not be overcome by the orders issued by the judge.
Former political activist Brittany Higgins (pictured front) speaks to reporters as she leaves the Commonwealth Parliamentary Offices after meeting then-prime minister Scott Morrison in Sydney on Friday, April 30, 2021.
“The most appropriate trial … is a real and serious risk that despite the efforts of the court judge there will be members of the judiciary who could convict the case unknowingly and which cannot be remedied,” ACT Director of Public Prosecutions Shane Drumgold told the court. .
“We acknowledge that there are significant changes but limited applications for those that are limited do not allow for temporary stay.”
The Supreme Court was told Wilkinson would be called as a witness in the case.
On Monday, Mr Drumgold said Logies’ speech was a ‘regurgitation’ of emotion, saying that Ms Wilkinson had said similar things before.
Judge McCallum said, in summary, Ms. Wilkinson’s speech went on to say: ‘Not only do I trust her, but she is brave and wonderful and she is the most important thing that has ever happened to me and I am proud to bring her claims …
Judge Lucy McCallum said the public had confused the Brittany Higgins case (right) with the work of former Australian Best of the Year Grace Tame (left), despite one person being convicted in Ms. Tame’s case.
“We are aware that the defendant has conducted a recorded interview in which he denies any sexual activity,” he said.
An earlier request for a stay was dismissed by Judge McCallum in April, when he said that he was not convinced that the orders given to the jury could not reduce the hatred of hatred against Lehrmann.
Mr Drumgold claimed that the second request included ‘renewing the order’.
The trial was set to begin on June 6 but was postponed until June 27 after Lehrmann’s lawyer withdrew a few days before the trial.
