The upcoming federal election has been a tough time for Deborah Knight.
Following Clive Palmer's unorthodox response to some pressing questions - Deb has found herself in hot water again.
The 46-year-year-old was simply upholding her journalistic responsibility on the TODAY show when the veteran reporter found herself under a relentless attack from political candidate Pauline Hanson.

During this morning's segment on the breakfast show, the Today co-host addressed the controversial politician's latest poll show that her party's primary vote has collapsed.
“The latest Newspoll, it shows support for One Nation collapsing to four per cent, on par with Clive Palmer’s party,” Knight said.
“In light of all the things you’ve faced, all the scandals, all the things that have been going on, can you really blame people for having their doubts about One Nation and considering Clive (Palmer) over you?”
“I’ve actually gone up since the last election, unlike your show, Deb, since you’ve actually taken over,” Senator Hanson shot back.
“You’ve actually gone down in your viewership.”
“Ooh, you’re having a go,” Knight responded.
Senator Hanson then went in for her final dig: “So, should you hand over your job or should we bring Karl back? Should we bring Karl back? You have a go at me about this all the time.”
