Statement from SBS regarding The Feed

15th August 2015

The idea that Zaky Mallah is being given his own show is completely incorrect.


SBS had confirmed to the journalist that this was not true, yet he decided to run with an incorrect headline.


A freelance journalist had pitched a potential story idea to The Feed, SBS’s youth news and current affairs program, that could have involved Zaky Mallah in a story segment.


The idea was pitched to SBS but no filming had been booked and it had not even progressed past an idea.
