“What’s it like talking to a man on death row?” Karl Stefanovic cheekily asked Deputy PM Julie Bishop this morning on Today.
But he didn’t count on her answer.
“Well I’m talking to you Karl what are you suggesting?”
Her answer, whether intended at a dig at the Nine host or not, comes at a time when Today is under continued ratings pressure.
Last week it drew its lowest weekly numbers all year, averaging 222,000 to Sunrise‘s 281,000.
Yesterday Sunrise still had the edge at 263,000 to Today‘s 226,000.
