News Corp’s Sydney masthead The Daily Telegraph and Fairfax Media have joined forces to fight Seven West Media’s court injunction on Amber Harrison that bans her from talking about her affair with the company’s CEO, Tim Worner.

According to The Australian, Fairfax and a barrister representing The Daily Telegraph fronted the NSW Supreme Court this morning to argue that the injunction, which prevents Harrison from publishing confidential material or talking to media about her affair with Worner, should be lifted.
B&T has also received correspondence from Seven’s lawyers forbidding us from publishing any of Harrison’s social media post.
Matthew Lewis, the barrister who represented The Daily Telegraph, told the court that the media should still be allowed to interview Harrison to get her side of the story.
Lewis argued that recent comments by Seven chairman Kerry Stokes and board member Jeff Kennett (as reported on B&T), who have hit out at Ms Harrison’s allegations, should be allowed to be put to her, The Australian reported.
Seven’s attempt to silence Harrison appears to have backfired anyway, with Worner’s former mistress taking to Twitter to attack the network and its board.
