Latham taking his anger online

SACKED Sky News commentator Mark Latham has launched a Facebook page appealing for donations for a website he plans to launch called Mark Latham's Outsiders.

It puts him in direct competition with his former employer, which is set to relaunch the Outsiders panel show on Sunday.

The former Labor leader posted a video on Facebook promising a new site and Facebook Live video.

"Your contribution will help with the start-up costs and ongoing operation of Outsiders broadcasting. We offer a 'Deplorable' Guarantee!” he wrote. "Thank you again for supporting the anti-PC movement.”

In a later post, he added: "I refuse to be silenced.”

Mr Latham pledged not to surrender to the "manufactured outrage industry and the militant Gay-Left Stalinists that have overwhelmed the mainstream media”.

Sky News fired him late last week after a series of on-air outrages, including his description of a Sydney Boys High School student as "gay”.
