Media Pundits Back Away From 9/11 Debate With Sheen
2009 10 15

By Paul Joseph Watson | RefuseResist.net

Charlie Sheen’s challenge to media pundits to debate him on the issues brought up in his “20 Minutes With The President” letter has not been met after several news outlets expressed interest in taking part but later backed off when it became clear that the discussion would have to be fairly moderated.

Bill O’Reilly was the only pundit to express an interest in debating Sheen but all has gone quiet on that front following Sheen’s request that the debate be properly presented with each side having equal time.


Charlie Sheen and Bill O'Reilly

Earlier this month, appearing on The Alex Jones Show, Sheen responded to personal attacks by Meghan McCain, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly, by challenging them all to a debate on neutral ground regarding the unanswered questions surrounding 9/11.

Initially, CNN’s Larry King Live show was eager to host the debate but was shocked that it could find no one who would agree to go toe to toe with Sheen and his 20 bullet points on 9/11.

E mails forwarded to us by Sheen indicate that Bill O’Reilly was initially interested and that ABC’s Good Morning America was keen to broadcast the debate.

However, as soon as Sheen outlined rules that would ensure a fair environment to discuss the issues, O’Reilly and his representatives went cold and backed away from the challenge, according to Sheen.

But at least O’Reilly had the courage to respond, unlike every other debunker who attacked Sheen yet skulked away in a cowardly fashion when they were challenged.

“We’re not naked shouting from the top of a building ‘come debate us’, we’re just issuing a very calm and reasonable offer to just sit down in an open and fair debate forum and hash this thing out,” Sheen told The Alex Jones Show yesterday.

Sheen characterized O’Reilly’s brief interest in the debate as a “nibble” and added that an agreement has not been reached on the terms that were presented to the Fox News host’s representatives.

Sheen said that the reaction to his challenge was, “Inkeeping with how this very deceptive and dangerous machine operates.”

“As long as they’ve got the media under their control then this is the mountain that we must continue to climb,” he added.

I’ll agree to BO [Bill O'Reilly] on his turf if the following rules are agreed upon:

1) If BO is going to have anyone on with him then we need ample warning, as well as the disclosure of who this person is.

2)If BO, adds more people to his debate team CS [Charlie Sheen] can include others as well, obviously revealed prior to the event.

3) Minimum 2 segments 5 min each, preferably 3 segments. Cannot cover all this ground in ONE segment.

4) Live broadcast.

5) 1 minute allotted to each side per issue or case point, no interruptions from either side during presentation of each specific point or argument.

6) No microphone silencing or commercial send-offs during CS’s allotted debate minute(s) per debate point. No other tactics of disruption, verbal or otherwise.

Look forward to your response – cs

Good Morning America would love to do this. Seems like completely neutral ground. Please let me know ASAP, and we will start to make plans.

Let me come up with some ideas. I don’t think that going on CNN would necessarily be an option, though! (Sheen’s idea on that radio show)

Ron,

l have spoken again with Charlie and has definite interest in speaking publically with Bill

regarding 9-11.

Although he has no problem in discussing this with Bill, we would prefer to do this on neutral turf.

Let me know your thoughts.

Stan
