Sky News needs to sack Ross Cameron’s stupid sidekick, Rowan Dean, according to human rights specialists.
The Murdoch-owned network sacked Ross Cameron, co-host of the low-rating ‘Outsiders’ program, after he made racist comments on air.
Sky News sacked Ross Cameron after outrageous comments
Cameron made the derogatory remarks about Chinese people during last Tuesday night’s show.
Newly appointed Sky News boss Paul Whittaker fired Cameron the following day, issuing a statement which read:
“Sky News is committed to robust discussion and debate however this language is totally unacceptable and has no place on any of our platforms, not in modern Australian society.
“We apologise for any hurt or offence caused by the remarks made by Ross Cameron on the program.”
The broadcaster has deleted the offensive content from all its platforms.
Cameron and Dean have form
Earlier this year, Senator David Leyonjhelm appeared on the program making offensive and sexist comments about Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young.
Neither Cameron nor Dean challenged his remarks.
“They sit there like a pair of dumb muppets, nodding and agreeing and giggling with each other,” Miles Heffernan from Human Rights Claims said.
Sky News later issued an apology to Senator Hanson-Young and claimed it suspended a producer over the broadcast.
“They blame a lowly-paid producer for the incompetence and ignorance of these two highly paid on-air dickheads – how pathetic,” Mr Heffernan said.
Dean should also be sacked
Mr Heffernan said Sky News should also sack Dean, who giggled like a little school girl when Cameron made his racist remarks.
Additionally, Dean is well-known as a climate change denier, despite having no scientific qualifications on the subject.
He regularly broadcasts ignorant views about climate change unsupported by the wider scientific community.
“These two blowhards have spewed their ignorant, racist, sexist, homophobic bile to an equally dumb audience for long enough,” Mr Heffernan said.
“They’re a pair of silly school boys, and Australian audiences can do without their hateful and juvenile commentary.”
