I challenged Alex Berenson to defend his defamatory remarks about me. He refused.
Alex Berenson said in a post on X that I am either a liar or I fabricate data. I immediately reached out to him to suggest we have a public recorded discussion to resolve the question. He refused.
Alex Berenson posted this on X:
I immediately reached out directly and via a mutual friend, Rav Arora, who offered to moderate the discussion.
Berenson didn’t respond to me, but he responded to Rav and said he’d debate if I made a donation to the Salvation Army.
I said he should defend his statements without my having to write a check.
He should either do it without strings attached or, if he wanted to attach stakes to the discussion, we’d agree on an amount and the loser would pay the funds to the other person’s selected charity.
That makes no sense to me. If he’s confident in his statement, then my offer is equivalent to the terms he outlined. I pointed that out here:
I think it’s important to resolve this issue. Apparently, Alex doesn’t agree. What do you think?
