Good afternoon. It is the political corruption scandal that had it all, a secret multi-million-dollar mining deal, a prostitute, and lavish lunches. And now the former NSW Labor heavyweights Eddie Obeid and Ian Macdonald could face criminal charges after the criminal watchdog handed down its findings. A political reporter joins me. How have the two former politicians responded?They have both come out swinging. Eddie Obeid and Ian Macdonald will both fight to clear their names. They both expected today's findings. In regard to the prostitute, that this Emma Donald facing M -- having them as such. Eddie Obeid could also have judges laid over organising a coal mining lease. Earlier this afternoon I caught up with Ian MacDonald and this is what he had to say.I have done nothing wrong. I am not guilty of any of these findings that had been made by the commissioner. They have taken a hardline approach throughout this. I do not believe that, in the end, I will be found guilty of any wrong doing.It is a bad day for NSW Labor. Is there likely to be any fall-out on a federal level?The trick for both Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott is to improve the advantage for each of them. Tony Abbott has made the point clearly today there NSW Labor is at the core of the Federal Labor Party. It is all the one party. You have to look at the list of senior ministers. Bob Carr had Eddie Obeid as a minister. Tony Abbott has not been able to get the link, if he look at the latest polling. Labor is doing appallingly in NSW at a state level Badat a federal level it is neck and neck. The only good thing for Kevin Rudd is to hope that people forget about this and concentrate on what he is about.We will leave it there. The drug scandal gripping the AFL has deepened with reports that Ahmed Saad is facing a 2-year ban from the sport after returning and the regular sample. For the very latest we will go to Seb Costello at St Kilda's training gap -- training ground. What is the latest you we understand that he is being investigated for a results that was irregular within the last month. Neither the club nor the AFL will confirm the investigation. The Lee he says there is a process under way and it is inappropriate to comment further. He has not suited up for the Saints since July 7th. He has spent the past 15 -- three- way Spain for the reserve side. We had been told they will be making public comments in the next hour. Greg Westaway arrived at headquarters just a few moments ago and faced questioning.Absolutely no comment at all.Is it fair that his name is are the?A cannot say anything. I am coming in here to catch up. I will know better then. The maximum penalty and AFL player can face were testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance is a 2-year ban. It has never happened before. Only one has ever been found guilty. He got a 16 weeks' suspension back in 1997. Three people have been killed after a horrific crash north-east of Perth. Police say a truck and a four-wheel drive collided in the small town of Gidgegannup shortly before 9:00am this morning. It's believed all three victims were travelling in the four-wheel drive. The truck driver wasn't injured. NSW police are currently searching for a man searching for -- with a knife on the Mid North Coast. He has reportedly killed a dog during a domestic dispute. The incident occurred a few hours ago, north of Newcastle. Members of the public a pledge not to approach the man. -- urged not to approach. Police are concerned for a 6-year-old boy, who watched 10 men bash his father during an armed robbery in Sydney's south. The men entered the home just before 9:30 last night, armed with guns and knives, before allegedly pistol-whipping and punching the boy's father. The men then fled in two cars. Police are still unclear on a motive for the attack.We do not know why why they were targeted.The boy's father was taken to hospital last night, but has now been released with minor head injuries. Smokers could be among those hit hard by Rudd government spending cuts as it desperately looks to save billions of dollars and get the Budget back on track. This week's economic crackdown is seen as the last major announcement before Kevin Rudd announces the election date. Let's cross to Kerrie Yaxley in Canberra. Kerrie, what savings can we expect to see? Nothing has been announced yet. We believe the Government is looking at revenue shortfalls of up to $30 billion over the next four years, meaning that it needs to find some big savings. Chris Bowen will make a statement later this week. It is to reveal more about the state of the nation's finances and how the Government intends to make up the shortfall. Today, Kevin Rudd announced that the Government will give 90 but million dollars that make $90 million to RBA in Sydney. During the conference he discussed the impact of smoking on health and the budget. It is being taken as a big hint that the economic statement will include a tax hike on tobacco products. Chris Bowen says they need to look at all options.Around 30% of cancer is caused by tobacco consumption. It is estimated that this will kill 15,000 Australians each year. We need to get serious on that this major driver of Cats are in Australia.The interesting thing about this government is that it cannot control his own spending, therefore it always looks to increase taxes.Kevin Rudd has got Obama power on his side as he prepares for the Federal election. Three campaign experts who specialise on online campaigns. They have proved effective at utilising social media in campaigns. They are supposed to be very good at attacking their opponents. That is what they did for Barack Obama. The prime minister was asked about his new weapon. He did not give much away.I have always been a strong supporter of President Obama. We will draw upon the best brains in the world. They are very welcome. We are a welcoming Bunch in the national campaign team.Two of these experts are already in Australia and one is on the way. Their arrival is being seen that the election date announcement could be as close as of this weekend, with speculation that we will be going to the polls on 7th September. It is all speculation at the moment. The Sydney father charged with abducting his former girlfriend and their son at knife point last week has pleaded not guilty to the allegations. The 24- year-old, who can't be identified, was also charged with having sex with a minor and breaching an AVO. The man's lawyer says his client plans to fight the charges of abduction and assault - using a series of text messages as his defence. He's set to apply for bail when the matter is heard in court again next month. Three teenage boys, as young as 13, have been charged over an attempted armed robbery in Melbourne. Police say the teens entered the milk bar at the Basin in the city's east last night. The owner alleges they produced a knife and demanded cash, but he chased them away with a broom.I am concerned about my family. And people asking me if I am concerned about my safety. Your first reaction is not to think you yourself.A 14-year-old boy and two 13-year-olds will appear in court at a later date. The future of Holden is one step closer to being decided, with workers at the struggling car maker's Adelaide plant set to vote on savings worth $15 million. Reporter Eddie Godfrey has been following developments today and joins us now. Eddie, what does this mean for workers? The manufacturing Workers Union has now identified $50 million in savings at Elizabeth. That is in line with Holden's demands will stop it comes up the weeds are working through every aspect of workers' conditions and entitlements there. From all reports, workers have been extremely flexible throughout this process, willing to do just about everything other than take a pay cut to get this through. It is understood that it is the recommendations from a costings review that has helped achieve this outcome. We spoke with the man in charge of that today.What we have is hopefully the start of an agreement that will generate a period up until about 2022 which will give us time to lay the groundwork for what will happen after that.This is come as a particularly crucial time. Workplace changes are due to be handed to workers tomorrow. They will have a week to consider those changes before voting. It is successful it will be presented to General Motors in September. Ultimately they will decide the future of Holden in Adelaide. There is a long way to go. This outcome appears to be a step in the right direction. That is good news. An American solider has been cleared of aiding the enemy after leaking top secret documents to WikiLeaks. But Bradley Manning is still facing up to 137 years behind bars after he was found guilty of a number of spy charges. Nine's US correspondent Denham Hitchcock has the details. It has taken a three years but Bradley Manning has finally had his day in court. There were 21 charges in all. He has been found guilty on 19 judges including espionage. The charge of aiding the enemy, which would have carried up to life in prison, he has been found not guilty of. That is a blow to the government. It is the largest ever leak of classified documents in US history. There is a lot of debate over what damage was done. Also whether he should ever does make even be in prison. The government has called him a traitor saying he has endangered peoples lives. Others are calling him a whistle-blower or a hero. WikiLeaks, run by Australian at Julian Assange, they had both become household names because of this. Manning is in jail and Julian Assange is in that embassy in London. He spoke out today.It can never be that conveying true information to the public is espionage.The tours and a standing release of information. More than 700,000 pages of documents and videos. There was one in particular that his supporters point to and that was this 2007 video of an Apache helicopter crew gunning down 12 people on a Baghdad street. It was a Reuters television camera crew and children were inside the car. Let us will get the video.

That is video that is hard to watch. His supporters say if it was not for him releasing it would never have come to light. The sentencing will take place tomorrow. He is facing up to 136 years in prison. It is likely to be just up to a couple of decades. The sentencing is tomorrow.

Australians are eating themselves to death - according to the Heart Foundation. It says we're eating 3.2 kilos of salt a year - three times more than our bodies need. Nine reporter Vicky Jardim joins us now from Melbourne. Vicky, the foundation is calling for the Government to take action - tell us more. The Heart Foundation is seeking a mandatory limit on how much salt is actually allowed in processed and takeaway foods. It believes that there is too much salt in everyday products. We're not talking about table salt, popular foods such as bread, cereals, and sources, have had some stats release on them. Bostonians are eating 3.2 kilograms of sold every year. That is more than we need. Children are consuming more than two kilograms of sold every year. More than triple the recommended amount. This mother tries to make healthy choices, but it is not always an easy task.A trip to the supermarket is a lot longer because I am looking at the labels and making sure there is no higher Shugart, fat, and salt content.Too much solves leads to high blood pressure. In Australia, one in 10 are young adults has high blood pressure. One in it two adults over the age of 50 has high blood pressure. It causes hardening and blockages of the arteries, particularly in the heart.Heart disease is a number one Kellogg Australian men and women. The Heart Foundation is calling on the Federal Government for a national action plan on sold. A water main explosion has killed a child, and left up to 17 people injured after sending a huge stream of water through a town near Rio de Janeiro. The spout - which reached heights of 20 metres - destroyed homes and flooded three city blocks. The fountain of water is said to have swept away several cars, with firefighters forced to use inflatable rafts to reach those stranded. A prisoner in the United States is on the run after a daring jail break in the state of Arkansas. Captured on camera, the armed robbery suspect waited until guards turned their backs before simply jumping over a counter and running off to a waiting getaway car. An officer took off after him, but wasn't able to catch the brazen prisoner. The car was found abandoned nearby. Stay with us, still ahead - when should babies be introduced to solid foods.

Former NSW Labor heavyweights Edie Obeid and Ian Macdonald could face criminal charges after being declared corrupt by the ICAC over a multi- million dollar mining deal, a prostitute and lavish meals. St Kilda AFL player Ahmed Saad is facing a 2-year ban after allegedly returning an irregular drug test sample. And police are searching for a man who cruelly assaulted a blind woman at a train station in Sydney's inner west.

Let's get details now. Former NSW Minister Ian MacDonald has promised a legal fight after the State's Corruption Watchdog found he and one time Labor powerbroker Eddie Obeid had acted corruptly. Mr Obeid has dismissed the findings as biased. State Politics reporter Kevin Wilde has followed developments for months now. Despite the seriousness of the findings, the two men appear defiant?They will take the matter to the highest court possible to clear their name. To go back a step, the main case involves Eddie Obeid's family getting a benefit, $75 million from a decision made by Ian MacDonald's department when he was a mining minister. You also have the prostitute. Ian McDonald received a $400 neck massage from someone accused of murder. Both actions could involve possible criminal actions. Let us hear from Eddie Obeid and Iain Mac Donald.He is very devastating to myself and my family. I do not believe that in yen I will be found guilty of any wrongdoing.We have been sentenced before being judged. In this country, I have never seen it done before. It is wrong. Especially to a good Christian family.Tony Abbott is trying to make sure that federal labour a tarnished by this? His job is made easier by the factors foreign minister of Bock half head Eddie Obeid is one of his ministers many years ago. Anthony Albanese he was a factional made of the McDonald going back many years. Although not any more. The thing for Kevin Rudd is to say I'm a Queenslander and I'm against corruption. The matter is being dealt with. So far, voters are making a distinction between state late and federal labour. We just have to wait and see.And if you're in Sydney, Kevin will have all the latest developments on that story in Nine News at 6pm. The AFL is dealing with yet another drugs scandal tonight - this time, it's St Kilda in the spotlight. Forward Ahmed Saad is facing a 2- year ban after giving an irregular sample. Clint Stanaway is at St Kilda's training ground. What have the Saints had to say about this? In the past few minutes, the Saint Kilda or manager has confirmed that Ahmed Saad is being investigated by the AFL for breaching the anti- doping code. He also said the star is disappointed to be in this position and that he returned a sample that tested positive for a substance that is banned under the code.Ahmed Saad is surprised and disappointed to find himself in this position after returning a positive sample to a substance alleged to be on the prohibited list. The product suspected is permitted for use out of competition. It is not allowed to be used in competition. The club is bound by confidentiality, under the A F L anti-doping code. As a consequence, cannot make any further comment.Extraordinary revelations. The maximum ban a player can face for breaching the anti-doping code is a two-year ban from the sport. That has never happened before. Only one player has ever been banned from the AFL for testing positive to end performance-enhancing substance. Ahmed Saad he is being investigated by the A F L. Police are hunting a man this afternoon after he allegedly sexually assaulted a blind woman at a Sydney train station. Dimity, what more can you tell us about the incident?This happened two weeks ago but police have not yet been able to find the man they are looking for. They released CCTV that shows the person of interest. At first he appears to be quite the gentleman, helping to guide to the woman who is legally blind into the love that Ashfield train station. Once inside, police have been told he touched the woman on the breast. You can see the woman continues on, navigating her weight with the cane. The man follows her on to the train that she captures from Sutton-in- Ashfield to Central Station and follows her on a different train from Central Station to another station. He is said to have indecently assaulted the woman once again. The allegations of art raged detectives, who hope that by releasing their foot -- the footage they can do to predators that tied up the most vulnerable.It is quite a disturbing incident. She is a vulnerable person. She is visually appeared. The footage supplied by state rail is very clear. Anyone who watches that Portage will be able to identify this person. They cannot possibly -- they can hope pass with the investigation.He is described of being of Indian appearance. He was wearing a brown and white striped jacket. Anyone who recognises him should come forward to police. A Sydney court has granted former bikie boss Sam Ibrahim bail this afternoon after he faced charges of intimidation.

The mother of an Ipswich teenager who lost his hands in a home-made bomb blast says the tragedy has taken a toll on the whole family. Nine's Chris O'Keefe joins us now from Brisbane. A 43-year-old man's been charged - what can you tell us?He was a resident of the infamous Ipswich on house. He was already facing charges after police found lots of crude explosives throughout the house. Yesterday during a sweet, they found a golf ball bomb. Along with witness statements that was enough to charge him with grievous bodily harm over an incident back in May. That involved a 50 year-old boy who thought picking up a golf ball it was a golf ball but it was a home- made bomb. He lost both of his fingers. He and his mother told us he still has a very long way to go. I happened and needles. Stinging pains. The nerves are growing back. I have heaps of pain.It took a big toll on the family. We were very stressed. It was starting to impact on the family a great deal.Today police handed the property back to the owner. They are satisfied there are no more bombs around the house.

He will face court next month. An Adelaide researcher has re- ignited the debate about when to start feeding babies solid food.

A week's split up in different hands on the front programmes, you have now reunited. What is the mood like?We are looking forward to this test. What we produced at Lord's, we are not proud of. We have to be at the top of our game to get a win for the series. What we did at Lord's was unacceptable. We are looking forward to the third Test.How did you put lords behind you. They were a couple of trivia night's? Different things to take our minds off it. We had a good break to get away from it and think about where we need to go once we get back together. We were all disappointed with what we produced at Lord's. It is about being accountable for that and moving forward.I you refreshed mentally?Definitely. It was good to give away a bit.Steve and so unable to train with the side. He has a back problem. -- Stevens mac. His back goes on in occasionally. He is in no doubt for the game. David Warner back in action. Plenty to prove?David warned of winter back and -- went away and scored runs. He sulked about leaving the tour but went away and got hundred and 90.

Sydney showers clear the city by 630 this morning. Another beautiful day for Melbourne. Tomorrow, a high will keep it fine for most of the East. A front bringing a few shells to her late. Some rain and strong wind for Melbourne on Friday afternoon. Shells for the south-west. Not much is expected. 10 mm for isolated your arrears but less than five. Sydney, partly cloudy. Enjoy your evening. In finance - the sharemarket has closed higher with investors ahead of the latest US Federal Reserve meeting. The All Ordinaries was up 9 points.

Hello, everybody. Welcome to
the Millionaire Hot Seat tonight. We're ready to go. 15 questions,
six contestants, $1 million. And tonight could well be the night.
What do you reckon, everyone? AUDIENCE: Yeah!
Come on. It's gotta go off at some stage. Let's meet our contestants tonight. And over in seat 1,
we have Scott Pollard. He won eight grand
on a Melbourne Cup trifecta then lost the winnings somewhere. Whoops! Janette Baxter
won a dance-off by default because she had everyone
laughing so much. Footy injuries were so common
for Mat Denning, he even got injured
during the coach's address. Lowana Ellis was born 11 weeks early and lived on a prawn trawler
for her first two years of life. While living in Papua New Guinea, Roly Lambeth tried to jump over
a sewerage ditch. Yep, you guessed it - landed in it. And for her 75th, Jan Atcheson celebrated by jumping
out of a plane at 14,000 feet! Wow!

Good effort.

Now...whole group
of six thrillseekers tonight. Well, the thrill is all theirs
when they sit in the hot seat, 'cause they could win $1 million. Scott Pollard, you ready to go?
Ready. Let's go. Come on, Scotty, let's play.
Come on.

How are you, Scott?
Very well. Good to see you, pal. 31 years of age from Seaford Rise
in South Australia. That's right.
Where's Seaford Rise? Oh, it's about 45 minutes south
of Adelaide, just on the coast. Good on you, mate.
Beautiful part of the world. Yeah, nice. A radiographer with the Women's
and Children's Hospital
in South Australia in Adelaide. That's right. Hey, Scott, tell me about this
$8,000 you won at the racetrack on Melbourne Cup on a trifecta. Well, it was with a bunch of lads. There was four or five of us
that had put
a bit of a box 10 trifecta on and had a bit of money on...
I think the 2005 Melbourne Cup, and decided once we won it
that celebrations were in order. And a few drinks later, thought it'd be a good idea
to cash the ticket in. I was the most responsible one.

About an hour later, mate comes up,
"Mate, where's the money? "You know,
I wanna have a look at it." You know, eight grand, and it was obviously two grand each, and I've looked in my pockets
and I've thought it was gone. Looked for about half an hour. Obviously my memory wasn't with me.
Yeah? And went to get a tissue out after
I started to get a bit emotional - I've lost two grand
of my mates' money - and it was in
the top left jacket pocket. Fantastic. Under the tissue. My mates have never
let me live it down, either. Alright, let's go, Scotty.
You know the routine here, mate. Remember this - you answer the next
15 questions, I give you $1 million. You can pass
if you like at any stage, buddy. You ready to go?
Yep. Let's play Hot Seat.

Scott Pollard, for $100.

I like the early questions, Eddie.
I'll go with C, rolling, please. Rolling stone gathers no moss - correct, for $100.

(READS QUESTION)

Um...I can probably
knock a couple out here, but I'm only going to
be guessing between a few, so...I might pass
on this one, Eddie. I'm not much of knitter
or crocheter.
Catch you later, buddy. Thank you.
See ya, mate.

Hey, Janette.
Hi, Eddie. How are you? I'm very well. Janette Baxter's from Ballarat
in the goldfields of Victoria.
Yes. 48 years of age, customer service
officer with Medicare. Yeah.
That's the way. What, do you get all the complaints
and things, do you?
No, no. Our customers are lovely. Yeah?
Yeah. So what do you do for 'em?
They ring up and say, "I'm happy"? No, no. I'm actually on the counter,
so, you know, hopefully I help them. Well, you give 'em back money,
so they like that. That's right, yeah.
That's the way. Alright, Janette, let's go for $200. (REPEATS QUESTION)

Well, having a cuppa would be
a good thing to do after it, but I think it's B, casting on,
so lock in B, please, Eddie. Casting on is in and correct, for $200.

And you finish by casting off. $300.

(READS QUESTION)

I think it's C. Lock in C, please, Eddie. Christian. Christian's locked in. YMCA - Young Men's Christian
Association - correct, for $300.
