The ABC has dismissed claims that they pulled an upcoming '4 Corners' episode about Scott Morrison’s alleged links to the QAnon conspiracy theory.
The national broadcaster says they contacted the Prime Minister’s office 4 weeks ago with questions, and followed up with them more than 20 times - yet have not received a response.
In October 2019, Crikey reported on the alleged relationship between Scott Morrison’s wife, Jenny, and her friend Lynelle Stewart, whose husband, Tim, reportedly became at one of Australia’s most prominent pushes of the conspiracy theory.
During a press conference last week, Morrison said the allegations were "deeply offensive."
According to Wikipedia, QAnon is a "discredited American far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satanic, cannibalistic pedophiles run a global child sex trafficking ring and conspired against former President Donald Trump during his term in office."
Despite the recent reports, many adherents of the conspiracy theory aren't fans of the Prime Minister, labelling him part of the "globalist deep state" and slamming his large support of COVID-19 vaccines.
6 News has reached out to the Prime Minister's office, but has not gotten a response.
