Brad Hazzard accused of "bullying" & "demeaning" ABC journalist during press conference

Other reporters at the national broadcaster have now had their say.

NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard has been accused of "bullying" and "demeaning" ABC journalist Danuta Kozaki during a press conference held this morning.

Hazzard was asked multiple questions by the reporter, who was on the phone, not in person - interrupting her multiple times.

"Someone just said Danuta can ask a question, but that wasn't me, Danuta," he said.

At one point, he interjected, saying "there are a stack of people here all just..clapping & cheering at all your continuing questions."

"One more, one more - so make it good."

"Thanks Danuta, see ya...anyone wanna give a round of applause for Danuta? No, there was nobody - sorry Danuta, bye."

ABC News Breakfast co-host Michael Rowland was one of many who commented on the video.
