Has anybody seen this horrific story...the mother was aware that her 14 year old daughter had been raped aged 12, yet still questioned her on live radio about sex. That poor poor girl...

It is an absolute disgrace! The show has been suspended and the male presenter has also been sacked as a judge on Australian Idol too.

I has been all over the news here in Aust. I cannot believe anyone thought it was a good idea to strap a 14 yo to a lie detector machine to begin with.

The mother should be utterly ashamed of herself for allowing her daughter to be in that situation and for asking her that question. Particularly as she knew her daughter had been raped!!!

Makes Jeremy Kyle seem tame!!

There was a thread about this the other day. Or it was mentioned or something, although I can't see it now.

V. glad presenter has been sacked and show suspended. Never mind picking on a rape victim (wtf was her mother thinking????), wiring children up to a lie detector and asking them about sex is wrong, wrong, wrong. Who on earth thought that was a good idea?
