David Koch hits out at Barnaby Joyce ahead of controversial $150,000 TV interview

Ahead of the anticipated tell-all interview with Barnaby Joyce and Vikki Campion, David ‘Kochie’ Koch was quick to remind interview host and journalist Alex Cullen of Mr Joyce’s ‘real family’ on Seven’s Sunrise breakfast show.

The couple controversially accepted $150,000 from the Seven Network to tell their story in an explosive interview.

David Koch spoke to Alex Cullen, the journalist who will be hosting the Sunday Night interview, asking: ‘Does he talk about the other family … his real family?’

The co-host was eager to point out that Mr Joyce ‘has another family as well’.

‘I sometimes wonder what they’re going through with all of this … does he talk about the other family [in the interview]?, Mr Koch asked.

Mr Joyce’s affair with media adviser Vikki Campion ended his 24-year marriage to his wife, Natalie, the mother of his four daughters.  

Mr Cullen said the politician did speak about his wife and daughters during their interview together.

‘I asked about his family because he is still married, he’s not divorced … and it was an affair, let’s face it,’ he said.

The backbench MP for the New South Wales seat of New England told the Seven Network he had let his family down.

‘I failed, I failed, I failed, I failed, I failed,’ he said.

The affair raised character questions about the Catholic, family values politician who had last year campaigned against gay marriage. 

However, Mr Cullen said the new couple were ‘absolutely in this for the long haul’.

‘And let’s face it, they’ve also got a six week baby on their hands, which is little Sebastian. They’re very much a family.’
