The new US ambassador to Australia called a male reporter out for talking over a woman during her first press conference in the posting.

After witnessing Ten News reporter Hugh Riminton talking over a fellow reporter, Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of former president John F. Kennedy, said: "did you just talk over the woman?"

"Okay, well, she started," Ms Kennedy added, before chuckling and turning her attention back to the woman.

Mr Riminton later admitted in a tweet that it is "only fair" that he should out himself.
