An Australian television legend has been accused of sexual harassment

  • Hollywood’s post-Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandals have hit Down Under. “This week reports emerged that the once-beloved Don Burke could be a very different man behind closed doors,” reports The New York Times. “He is now at the center of a national reckoning over sexual harassment in the workplace, after being publicly accused of harassing, assaulting and bullying women during his professional heyday.” Burke hosted the gardening and lifestyle show Burke’s Backyard for 17 years. “The Harvey Weinstein saga in Hollywood started a witch hunt,” Mr. Burke said in denying the accusations against him.
