Making professional comments about journalists  

Sam Newman: 

"The jig's up Caro, honestly and truly. You're becoming an embarrassment.

"And even if you were underwater, you'd still be talking,"

(Remember when he groped that mannequin with Wilson's picture on it?)

On inappropriate language 

Sam Newman

 "If you're going to want to be treated equally, the point is, don't complain when it's too equal," Newman said.

On people who found Eddie and Co's comments offensive

Sam Newman

"Those excrement who have weighed into this — I'd like to mention their names, but as nobody reads or listens to them because they're on second-tier media outlets. I won't bother.

"But if you spray excrement with perfume or put aftershave on a piece of excrement, at the end of the day, it's still a piece of excrement."
