Karl Stefanovic accused Lisa Wilkinson of having double standards on live television this morning during the Today show.

The panellists had been discussing photos of Crown Princess Mary of Denmark firing a gun while training with the Danish Home Guard when Stefanovic suddenly decided to call out his co-host.

“I’ve got something to say Lisa,” Stefanovic said.

“I think you have completely double standarded yourself today. You’ve sold yourself out with Princess Mary. If that was … an Australian politician you would flip your lid.”

Visibly confused, Wilkinson replied with, “Why?”
“Your anti-gun stance,” said Stefanovic, reports News.com.au.

Wilkinson then brought up some facts as to why she was not offended by the images of Princess Mary firing a gun, saying, “Hang on, she lives in Denmark which has certain issues.”

“She’s a lieutenant in the National Guard and she’s about to become Queen.

“When you’re a royal and you’re running a country you therefore become chief of the army.

“She’s just following through. She’s not asking of her people what she wouldn’t do herself.”

And then, Ben Fordham, Today show panellist, came to Wilkinson’s defence, saying, “Lisa, in case you didn’t know, Karl lost the plot years ago so don’t worry about it”.

“Very good point,” Wilkinson said, “Why am I even bothering to respond”.

Stefanovic still did not look happy and even said, “Well, double standards I say.”

Did Karl go too far with his comments or did Lisa deserve to be called out? Would you call anyone out on live TV?

    Yet another example of Karl having totally lost the plot on reality

  2. god he is a dick why is he on television no wonder I watch other channels get rid of him at least Lisa is intelligent

  3. christine Rae  

    and he gets over 2 million dollars,,,which he wouldnt if everyone stopped watching the rubbish

    Lisa Wilkinson is so far left, that she would make Lenin look like a fascist.

  5. I agree with Karl on this point – she does have double standards. It seems it depends on the person as to which way the wind will blow with Lisa. Everybody has a go at Karl but he says it straight and yes with humour sometimes, he is there to entertain us after all. I think Lisa should be the one to go, and Fordham sticking up for her – I don’t give much for him either. At least Karl has overseas experience in journalism something Lisa has not – only a dolly magazine for her.

      Jennifer, are you related somehow to Karl as you seem to be the only one supporting the idiot, He has shown himself time and time again to be a mouth on a stick with no brain.

      • Jellous much Jennifer. Lisa defended her stand will quite relevant and pertinent reasoning. Would you expect a lieutenant in a defence force to be competent with firearms. Yes. Would you expect a Royal Sovereign and nominal head of an armed force to exemplify and be able to demostrate the requirements and role model the attributes expected of all the people who serve under her in defence of their country. Again Yes. Not everything is black and white and quite frankly it suprises me that Karl could be so pedantic about it to the point of pettiness. Is it necessary for a person holding rank in an armed force to be capable with weaponry. ( ). Is it necessary for a member of the public to use weaponry to shoot defenceless prey or endanger other people either negligently or with malice. ( ). You may have noticed that I have not provided you with the answers this time. Whilst you haven’t displayed a great deal of common sense or logical deductive reasoning to this point I feel it incumbent upon me to allow you to demonstrate a more balanced perspective of your ability to draw conclusions based on the merit of the particular propasals as they relate to the scenario. I also for my part would like to gauge the extent of your objectivity in relation to how your first opinion/statement determines your process in evaluating impartial and reasoned answers to questions that address the subject matter without the emotional content attached to the initial character assassination. Hahaha. Go on Jen give it a go. Appease my curiosty or berate my affrontery. But do answer the questions with some lucid and even vigorous insights towards the conclusion of your views. I’d like to see some impassioned belief that speaks of who you are. Show me the fire in your belly Jenny. Emblazon me upon the pyre of your wit. Somewhere inside that mousey one dimensional petulance you displayed with thinly veiled jelousy towards a dolly birds exploits across the pages of a magazine, resides a storm, a tempest in the breast
        Which way will your wind blow Jennifer? ?
        You need a purpose a ‘ Y ‘ in your life. Drop the ‘ ifer ‘ loose that staid old name. Tack on that Y and let your wind fly ‘ JENNY ‘ free. Hahahaha…..hahahaha.
        Bring it on Blakeny.

    Don’t watch Karl, gave up on him years ago. Lisa is just a leftie

  7. Elaine Olive  

    Karl should not be on that show if he isn’t on some sort of medication, he should be.

  8. Denis Hill  

    Karl is becoming increasingly unpopular he is full of himself and it’s time he moved on from the Today Show he is based in his interviews and although he thinks he is funny and he is not. His brother, Peter has a much better personality and should replace him. Put Stefanovic on the late news or on assignment in Syria

  9. It’s what I expect of Karl, he is a complete bully in every sense of the word, how he is allowed to continue broadcasting baffles me. I suppose there is a certain segment of the market that thinks he is funny. Recently moved away to another channel as I got feed up with him in particular.

  10. Maxine Weber  

    I have now changed back to 7, Karl is an big head show off and I have had it with him and his snorting. . Lisa, Sylvia and Pete are a great team, but put big head into the mix and it,s all about him.

  11. Maureen Thomson  

    I have said for a long time he is an absolute idiot last week Richard Wilkins was trying to give an entertainment report and he had a stupid fish dangling on top of Richards head he has definitely lost the plot it is so difficult to watch him anymore.

  12. Maryanne  

    Karl is an idiot. The discussion was about a princess Mary’s style not about shooting guns. I thought you were a journalist Karl oops sorry got that wrong.
