Not only that, one of the former Nine Network colleagues, Caroline Marcus, 42, told Daily Mail Australia that under his desk, he wrapped up with photos of dead Palestinian children in order to incite the reporter.

But this one is by far the most disgraceful and worst case he's been associated with.
He was the one who chased down the famous Hey Dad! star actor Robert Hughes in Singapore and accused the actor of child abuse.
He reported live about this case that resulted in the actor to be convicted of 10 lawful charges of sexual abuse against four young girls back in the 1980s and 1990s.
But now, tables have turned as he was caught off guard by the Sex Crime Squad detectives of NSW police department at 7.30 am last Thursday on Driver Avenue at Moore Park.

He was arrested and charged with child abuse and pornography. His Alexandria apartment was searched immediately along with his office at Channel Nine's headquarters, Willoughby.
Following this news, he was suspended by the network immediately. One of the reporters of A Current Affair, Leila McKinnon made a breaking news quoting,
"Tonight one of our most senior reporters is facing serious charges involving child pornography offences and while justice must take its course, given the serious nature of the allegations, Nine has taken a strong position and immediately suspended Ben McCormack."
The senior reporter has been ordered by the court to keep a distance from playgrounds, schools, and concerts. Also, he has been suspended from the Surf life-Saving club where trains the children.
Not only this, the court has ordered him to forbid any communication or accompany any person aged younger than 16 and banned from the internet until further notice.

"He would often show photos of guys he was seeing and they would always be baby-faced teens but a legal age.'
His friends even warned the gay reporter of dating teen men which have now emerged as another suspicion to support his child abuse and pornographic activities.
To make the situation worse, DailyMail just recently reported that McCormack directed a lewd incest gay film that shows a father performing a sex act on his adult son.
The black-and-white film was filmed in 2001, Brisbane.
Well, the reporter has to undergo further court proceedings and only time will tell the fate of this abusive reporter.
Ben McCormack spotted out in public after the charges
The former Channel Nine journalist who was accused of child porn was spotted last month in June, stepping out from a mental health institution in Australia.
The 42-year-old was charged with child pornography and was arrested. But after few days of arrest on April 10, Ben was sent to the hospital for his medical treatment and mental consultation.
Ever since he was not spotted going out on public until last month when he walked out of the institute and went to Redfern Station and didn't give any comment.
