The Studio 10 host launched a scathing attack on the Labor leader and took aim at his party's policies on Wednesday morning.

She criticised Mr Shorten's plans to create a National Gender Centre which she claimed would cost 'millions and millions' - as well his proposed tax changes.

The veteran broadcaster, 64, was accused by Labor of spreading 'fake news' - but on Thursday refused to back down and instead widened her attack to criticise Prime Minister Scott Morrison too.

'To be quiet frank both are lackluster people to be voting for,' she said of the leaders.

'Who has come out with a vision, or even one idea, that will hold Australia in good stead for the next 20 or 30 years? Not a single one of them.'

'All they are is sniping at each other to get across the line,' she said.

Responding to claims that she should not have shared her opinion, Ms Kennerley said: 'I'm not a journalist per say I'm a commentator and I don't expect for everyone to understand or relate or agree with me.

'But its just my opinion so you've got your view and I've got mine and I will continue unfortunately.

She did, however, apologise for using the word 'leech' to describe people taking a state pension.

'OK, I should never have said 'leech' – I didn't mean that,' Ms Kennerley said.

'That was a very bad word for me to say, so I'm sorry... but not for the rest of it.'

Ms Kennerley's criticism on Wednesday appeared to take colleagues by surprise as Sarah Harris joked: 'Tell us what you really think.'

The veteran host, 64, slammed Labor's plan to set up a tax payer-funded National Gender Centre to support transgender people.

'One thing I'm seriously outraged about, the millions and millions they'll spend on a Gender Commission,' Ms Kennerley said.

'These kids out there who are gender confused, and there's a percentage of people out there gender confused, they will put up this Commission and we, like Tasmania, will have a child and it won't be male or female, it will be gender-free.

'That'll be national.'

Ms Kennerley was referring to Tasmania's new policy of making gender optional on birth certificates - although Mr Shorten has said he will not implement this nationally.

She then claimed that parents would lose the right to decide their child's gender - although there is nothing in Labor's plans to suggest this would happen.

'And if your child is confused, the rights of your child will go to them, you will have no rights as a parent,' she said.

'That child will go, 'I want to be either a boy or girl, please give me whatever I need' and you as a parent will have no choice.'

Soon after that, I fainted.'

In a later segment on the show, Ms Kennerley said she had been contacted by Labor and accused of spreading fake news.

She read out sections of an email from Labor, saying: 'Earlier this morning, Kerri-Anne... fake news on your program, Labor spending 'millions and millions' to set up a Gender Commission.'

The email said Labor will not spend 'millions and millions' on the centre which will 'provide awareness of transgender issues in the wider public.'

Ms Kennerley said she 'stands corrected,' but added: 'Apparently they're not spending millions and millions, because they haven't costed it yet.'

The host also attacked Mr Shorten's economic policies, including his proposed changes to the way profits from shares are taxed.

She admitted that she had to google what franking credits were but went on to criticise Mr Shorten's planned changes to them anyway.

'Taking money retrospectively, as they will do, that franking credits, I had to google that, this is the way (for) self-funded retirees not to leech off the government pension.

'They look after themselves. They've got a plan. He's going to rip that off them.'

She also criticised Mr Shorten's plan to remove tax breaks for property investors.

'He'll put in negative gearing... no more investment into houses so your rent will go up.'

Ms Kennerley went on to attack Labor's plan to reduce the cost of cancer care as 'all smoke and mirrors'.

'Throwing money at cancer is just feeding the chooks,' she said. 'Don't believe it. Dig a little deeper. Just dig a little deeper.

'Anybody who believes they'll be better off if Shorten and the Greens get in is under some whoopy-do cloud. It will never, ever happen. You will tank.'

Her attack came as Mr Shorten, who is favourite to be Australia's next PM, made a pitch to big business in Perth, promising he would consider changes to workplace laws to allow long-term 'greenfields' bargaining.

A greenfields agreement is an agreement between a union and a new employer, that does not yet have employees.

He said massive projects which are expected to last beyond three years would fall under the plan.

The proposal would benefit major resources efforts, with Western Australia the key beneficiary.

The Labor leader said he wanted to deliver 'win-win' outcomes for business and workers.

Mr Shorten, who is a former Australian Workers' Union national secretary, reflected on his negotiating experience.

'I've spent my adult lifetime negotiating and delivering win-win outcomes for employees and employers,' he told business leaders.

Vote for Chloe Shorten’s husband! Bill takes morning jog dressed in tongue-in-cheek t-shirt before saying he is ‘confident that Labor will win election’ The Labor leader was seen on an early morning jog in Melbourne on Saturday, where wearing a shirt with 'Vote 1 for Chloe Shorten's Husband' written across the front. The shirt was a reference to Mrs Shorten's incredible popularity that has served to boost the Labor leader's image as he campaigned throughout the country with her by his side.

'I also understand that achieving win-win outcomes is only possible when everyone plays by the same rules.'

While not backing away from describing Saturday's election as a referendum on wages and the cost of living, Mr Shorten said he wanted to bring unions and business to the table.

'I think this country works best when we work together,' he said.

He said modest wage rises would help the overall economy, noting the current rate of zero per cent inflation was unhealthy.

'An anorexic economy is not the shape of a healthy economy.'

'That doesn't mean the sky is going to fall in,' he said, stressing the average was not his nominated number on wages growth.

Mr Shorten said controversial businessman and Senate candidate Clive Palmer played 'fast and loose' with the rules.

'Thanks to the preference deal he's done with Scott Morrison, Clive Palmer can turn up on day one with a political IOU almost as big as his ego,' the opposition leader said.

He committed to holding a summit between unions and big and small business in Perth in early June.
