    I might be unusual in my approach to ‘racism’ in speech and such, but I couldn’t find anything wrong in what he said. Nothing sack-able anyway.

    Unnecessary? Probably.
    I found, in my travels, racism from other than whites far more prevalent.

    Sky needs to grow a spine, or it could’ve been a convenient excuse they were waiting for to dismiss him?

  2. Clam Chowdah

    Certainly tedious to watch or listen to.

  3. I am bespoke

    Didn’t like the format of the show and Cameron’s style overshadowed impotent topics but as Mack A said it looks a convenient sacking.

  4. Jonesy

    I was amazed nothing was mentioned about this obvious scalp on msm during the week. My first news was on Sunday morning when Outsiders became Outsider. After digging up a copy of expunged episode 30 and viewing the monologue…really? Ross was sacked for this?

    Are we to understand that no comment can be made by white Australia on any other ethnic group who we have welcomed to our country .No matter how malign the intentions of that community and their country of origin are against our people our culture our economy , and our wealth and above all our once relaxed and integrated lifestyles .
    With the excuses offered re Ross Cameron It appears that we have to bare our necks to the knife and be grateful that persons of superior quality and obviously in better standing are killing us off.

    Any news organisation which is not entirely leftist will be marched through over time.

    Will be cancelling my subscription as soon as I can get through (after 9 am). I anticipate a flood of cancellations.
    The show’s ‘selling’ point was that it was always intended to be ‘edgy’, made somewhat ironic with the dismissal of Mark Latham a year or two ago from the same show.
    I tolerated Rowan’s tendency to speak over the top of Ross, but unfortunately the irony surrounding the deplorable Outsider nomenclature has succumbed to the inevitable political correctness enforced by the intolerant twitterati (who don’t watch the show anyway) and the leftist advertising industry which requires everything to be sanitised before consumption. The result? A compromised immune system.

    I got 2:50 into that video and had done to stop.

    Please someone give the min:sec where the sackable offence is.

  9. Pickles

    Perhaps he got the spear for dissing the USA, NATO & CIA?

  10. Pickles

    Or for opening, as Latham once tastefully put it “quality box”?

    Please someone give the min:sec where the sackable offence is.

    And don’t you forget it.

    It’s getting really tiresome that leftie activists have so much power. The rest of us, no matter how valuable as consumers, just don’t matter and can be disposed of without a backward glance.

    It seems most Australians are outsiders, managers of every media outlet only respect as their audience that small enervated segment of the population called Friends of the ABC.

  13. Suburban Boy

    mh, the “sackable” quote is at 5.12.

    Only a dolt would interpret the remarks as anything but ironic, given the rest of the clip shows that Ross gets wood at the idea of anything Chinese.

    Ross should read less Marcus Aurelius and more Niccolo Machiavelli, or at least listen to Machiavelli and the Four Seasons.

  14. Rebel with cause

    Sky must’ve been desperate for a reason to sack him.

    Tarring him as a racist to get him out the door is a despicable low act. Clearly spines and moral virtue in short supply at Sky News.

  15. Crossie

    Up until only recently the benchmark used to what an average person would think, or more accurately a reasonable person. Now the benchmark is the noisiest and the most unreasonable person. These people don’t number in millions but hundreds but since “elites” rule obviously the noisy minority gets to determine what is acceptable and what is not. Wearing a r-shirt calling Tony Abbott the c word is acceptable, just to give an example.

  16. Terry

    If THAT is the line that must not be crossed then Sky can add little value for its subscription demand that cannot be obtained for “free” (at gunpoint) from the ABC.

  17. Crossie

    Sky must’ve been desperate for a reason to sack him.

    They’ve had to let somebody go now that they gave a job to that snivelling traitor Dastyari. His attitude to China is the proper one.

  18. Sunni Bakchat

    It really sounds as though someone was triggered by the taboo term “slanty eyed”. A term that an Asian person could use against themselves any day of the week. Much as an Italian could use the word “Wog” or an American Black, “nigger”.
    All taboos are based on superstition and ignorance. We are therefore dumbing ourselves down to conform to acceptable narratives that supplant objectivity with subjectivity and the treat of adverse action.
    Welcome to Orwell’s Animal Farm. Where the new order rules that all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others. In this case totalitarian communists in China are the supposed underdog. The ethnic group that must be given a helping hand.
    Cameron, who is a self-indulgent, excessively verbose bore was referring to the collective Chinese, not the individual who chooses to exit their country for the democratic shore. He was referring to the potential benefits a mercantile race could bring to Australia as opposed to the negatives of communism.
    It would be wonderful if the Chinese underdog (in the collective sense), so beloved of our righteous cultural police, were actually Bible Reading, Innovative, Adam Smith acolytes. Alas they are not. They are instead a country of people benighted by a brand of totalitarian communism that can only lift living standards so far. A country that wants to position itself as the Soviets did post-war. As a system of government that acts as the alternative to Democracy.
    It is no coincidence that the modern Labor party as far back as Whitlam have wanted to encourage China’s emergence as an alternative form of government. Ironically, many of China’s comrades would not be living to half their present standard if their wishes came true.
    Clearly stupidity (and weakness) is expanding its bounds to Sky Television. Notwithstanding the fact Cameron is an insufferable bore who ought to be more disciplined in his on-screen presentation.
    Nobody will care about Cameron as his though crime has long been outdone by his Amateur and boorish TV persona.

  19. Robber Baron

    I think Ross didn’t get sacked for calling chinks yellow and slanty-eyed, he got sacked for supporting Labor policy on China.

  20. Old School Conservative

    Obviously a lot more was going on behind the scenes for this minor issue to become a sackable offence.
    We can only guess what the real reasons were but my money is on Crossie’s theory about bowing to the din-making minorities.

  21. Old School Conservative

    PS the name of the show in the future will have to reflect its new status as a mainstream, orthodox, leftist, ABC loving opinion provider.
    Outsider is no longer appropriate.

  22. Baldrick

    I’ll be using my right to freedom of speech this morning and tell Foxtel to shove their subscription.

    If I want politically correct Leftard speak I can get it from TheirABC for nothing.

  23. Warty

    I noticed the following comment in The Australian this morning: ‘In his post, Bolt agreed that Cameron should not have used the words “20,000 black-haired, slanty-eyed, yellow-skinned Chinese desperate to get into Disneyland”, but said Cameron was defending China as a great civilisation that had lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty’.
    Bolt went on to say that what he will do (probably leaving Sky) had nothing to do with Ross being sacked from the Outsiders. My own feeling that his muted support of Ross may have some impact anyway.

    Arthur Calwell
    From Wikipedia,

    Calwell and racism
    Calwell’s remark in Parliament in 1947 that “Two Wongs don’t make a White” is widely quoted. The remark was intended as a joke, being a reference to a Chinese resident called Wong who was wrongly threatened with deportation, and a Liberal MP, Sir Thomas White.

  25. Cassie of Sydney

    I’ll repeat what I wrote yesterday here…

    “I thought that Rowan’s introduction this morning was very good and heartfelt. You can see he is taking what happened to Ross very hard….as we all are. I really think that Ross should have been given the opportunity to apologise on camera. Yes, his choice of words was poor however his sacking is purely political. It is very clear that Sky has caved to the intolerant anti-free speech left due to the fact that a very sinister and pernicious organisation is now targeting Sky’s advertisers. Sky should have stood strong against the tirade. But they caved and this sets a very, very bad precedent. The organisation in question is a group called “Sleeping Giants” which I am pretty sure is financed from the US…..all roads lead to Soros. The organisation’s sister group in America is called “Media Matters’ which has been targeting (unsuccessfully) Fox News and in particular Hannity and Laura Ingraham. It is very clear that Sleeping Giants has been out to get Outsiders and Sky for months primarily because of the channel’s line up after dark doesn’t accord with their hard left worldview. Last night I looked at the twitter feed of Sleeping Giants and it isn’t pretty. They are gloating about what happened to Ross and are quite open about the fact they’re now going after Rowan. On the twitter feed I perused, that grotesque and well known race pimp…aka Soupman…was openly encouraging and egging on the organisation to go after and shut down Rowan Dean.

    So well done Sky for caving in to an illiberal Marxist and Soros funded group…..a group that only has a few followers but is successful because they routinely threaten and harass organisations and advertisers if they don’t like their politics. This pernicious organisation called Sleeping Giants succeeds precisely because companies and particularly the people that run these companies are now craven cowards and lack spine. Sleeping Giants will not stop at Outsiders….next they will be going after Bolt, Credlin, PML and the rest.”

    Ross Cameron’s sacking had NOTHING to do with what he said…whilst it was a poor choice of words he should have been given the opportunity to apologise on air. Ross Cameron is no racist. His sacking was about Sky management caving to a small activist group called “Sleeping Giants”….a Marxist, Soros funded far left group that has set up shop here in Australia. They are now gloating about what has happened to Ross and they make it quite clear that they are going after Rowan Dean next………then others on Sky such as PML, Credlin, Jones etc…..and then they’ll come for us. So well done Sky….worse than Quislings. It is a disgrace. Whilst the show had its ups and downs it was refreshing viewing because both Ross and Rowan’s hearts were in the right place in presenting a counter view to the leftist garbage that dominates all other news and commentary…including a lot on Sky. Sleeping Giants make it quite clear that they want to shut down Sky News….particularly Sky after Dark. And I will remind people that Ross Cameron was a formidable advocate for free speech.

  26. Big_Nambas

    While in recent times Ross has seemed to be not entirely into the show, often staring blankly away from the camera, this sacking is piss weak. He was a breath of fresh air to the opinion media and a very sharp wit.
    I will miss him and Latham, maybe they can join at Rebel and still give us some sense.

    Good. As Sky News scrambles to repair its sinking reputation, and prevent advertisers from pulling the plug, it can also terminate Rowan Dean. He is another one who can go back to the racist cave from whence he came

    Dean will be next, if enough Leftards like this keep complaining.

  28. mh

    Dear Cats,

    He says “slanty eyes”. You can now do something incredible with 7 mins of your life.

  29. Mindfree

    Dean will be next, if enough Leftards like this keep complaining.

    Not surprising that piece of human excrement Southpusssniffer came crawling out of his rock

    Any evidence that Dean is a racist you piece of shit?

    And this guy should have flushed down the toilet of leftscum in 2014 but Abbott didn’t have the spine

  30. black-haired/slanty-eyed Asian

    One of the reasoned why people like me subscribed to Sky News, it is because their shows are not like the other commercial channels, they are better than them. First the dismissal of Mark Latham a year or two ago from the same show, now Ross Cameron, who will be next? Please, Sky management don’t cave to either side, we don’t need another ABC, we need more of Ross Cameron, Rowan, Richo, Paul Murray, Credlin, Alan Jones, and Andrew Bolt, commentators that’s not afraid to speak the truth. Just to be clear I’m one of the “black-haired, slanty-eyed, yellow-skinned Chinese (mixed Asians)”, I wasn’t offended and I couldn’t find anything wrong in what he said.

    Well said.

  32. Mindfree

    Thanks Cassie – I was also motivated by your comment yesterday

  33. Mindfree

    Speaking of racist scum – didn’t Southpusssniffer make the comment re: idiot Mike Carlton’s anti-semitic remarks a couple of years that you were “agnostic” (Code for I approve)

    Yep – just an anti-semitic bigot as well as anti-white racist

  34. Rae

    The cigar store indian was more animated than usual. Dancing around in his chair, all hyped up as he worked towards his intended racist gestures and utterances. He deserved to be given the flick for it. Management was right. And they have the last say. Good riddance.

  35. Warty

    Thanks Cassie, your exposé explains everything (particularly for those of us who don’t use twitter).

  36. manalive

    Racism implies superiority/inferiority, Ross Cameron’s comments were not racist.
    The Sunday morning Outsiders was dull — ‘no show without Punch’.

  37. None

    Thanks it’s Sinclair for posting this so people can see the so-called offensive clip and make up their own mind, unlike Sky News which now wants to rewrite history by pretending nothing was said. And in fact in many ways nothing was said as everyone can see Ross was defending China much more than my own personal liking may I add. Well I can commend bolt for at least standing up and saying something in defence of Cameron albeit with his usual 50000000 qualifiers, my own desk was that the bolt report was going to merge with the new four nights a week outsiders and he was going to be number 3. Of course now it will be One and who knows what next. Note again not one Chinese person complained and not one advertiser complained but all reports point to an obscure far left group and a demented Sky News executive officer. Mind you I also point fingers at Australia’s corporate Chiefs who are the biggest bunch of limp dicked fascists this side of the Pacific.

  38. None

    Just read what you wrote above Cassie and heartily agree. This was a political hit by a bunch of fanatical leftiesi who need to be exposed. And how disgusting is that revolting Superman not only slandering Rowan Dean but inciting others to bully him. I’d give my left arm if someone could arrange to have that man deported. He is an utter utter disgrace.

  39. Egor

    That dud Whittaker is the one that should be sacked.
    Ross should be reinstated IMMEDIATELY with an apology.
    If not , then it’s bye bye Sky .
    If l wanted to watch PC Marxist rubbish , l would watch watch the force tax payer funded nearly 4 million dollars per day rubbish on ‘ channel 2’ !

  40. Herodotus

    There’s certainly someone who “deserves to be given the flick” again. Save us the trouble of lobbying Sinc and annoying him 24/7 and just piss off Rae.
