‘Thou shall not talk on the phone in Ubers’: Sunrise host Samantha Armytage appears to poke fun at Karl and Peter Stefanovic’s ‘Ubergate’ scandal where the pair were overheard talking about bosses and colleagues

Karl and Peter Stefanovic found themselves at the center of the so-called ‘Ubergate’ scandal in March last year.

Sharing her ‘Gospel According to Sam’ – a set of ten commandments – the 42-year-old had some hot tips.

She wrote for her number six rule: ‘Thou shall not drunk tweet, talk on the phone in Ubers and believe Airbnb reviews.’

It appeared to be a reference to the ‘Ubergate’ scandal where an Uber driver transporting Peter revealed details of an alleged conversation the TV journalist had had while on speakerphone with brother Karl.

After selling his story to New Idea magazine, the driver claimed Karl had been criticising his then Today co-host Georgie Gardner, 49, during the private conversation.

‘He said she didn’t have enough opinions and he wanted her to step up,’ the driver told the magazine at the time.

‘He actually sounded angry and said he was going to start pushing hard and that she needed to do that if she wanted to stay on the show.’

According to the anonymous driver, Karl also accused Channel Nine bosses of being ‘out of touch’ with the public.
