ABC still reviewing Catalyst

ABC is yet to confirm whether Catalyst reporter Dr Maryanne Demasi has been reinstated to its science show.

In July ABC indicated Dr. Demasi would be stood down until September following a breach of ABC editorial policies.

In a statement ABC said a “wi-fried” report contained errors and should have taken greater care in presenting complex and multiple points of view.

Asked this week whether Dr. Demasi had been reinstated, an ABC spokesperson said, “TheCatalyst review is still in process so we don’t yet have anything to report on the matter.”

According to her Twitter account Dr. Demasi remains a presenter / producer on the programme.

Last month she failed in a worker’s compensation appeal, claiming she was injured whilst taking a break from work at home.
