Seven board member and beyondblue founder Jeff Kennett has gone back on some of his criticism of a story on ABC’s 7.30 about the TV network sacking cadet reporter Amy Taeuber.

Kennett came out firing on Twitter about the report on Monday night’s episode of 7.30, claiming it was “not a factually correct story” and had “no seeking of balance in the interests of accuracy”.

However, in an interesting turn of events, Kennett has now apologised to the journo responsible for the story – Lousie Milligan – for claiming she didn’t seek comment from Seven, but noted that he still stands by his view that the report was unbalanced.

The 7.30 report focused on Seven’s handling of a workplace investigation and sexual harassment claim involving former employee Amy Taeuber.

The network subsequently denied the allegations and countered claims made by 7.30 that it refused to offer its side of the story in a statement.

Seven has been slammed from all angles over its handling of the Amy Taeuber case, with the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance urging the network to change its “toxic” ways.

It also drew heavy criticism from the public as well as others in the media industry.

Even the former mistress of Seven West Media CEO Tim Worner, Amber Harrison (pictured above) has had her say on the case in a series of tweets:
