Today I phoned and spoke directly with Dr. Jerome Corsi. It’s now official: He won’t appear in the January 21 debate and defend his claims that Obama’s birth certificate is an “obvious forgery.”
In fairness, Corsi’s refusal at this point may not be an absolute one. He said that he wasn’t going to do a debate for now; that he would wait and see how my debate with Zebest, Denninger and Harrison went, and then decide whether he would personally debate me.
When pressed for a reason for his refusal, Corsi wouldn’t give one.
At that point I informed Dr. Corsi that I would of course post at my blog that he had refused to debate. Dr. Corsi replied, “You can post whatever you want.”
Why Would Dr. Jerome Corsi Shy Away From a Debate?
Jerome Corsi has a PhD from Harvard University. He’s written several New York Times bestsellers. He is highly experienced with the media, having appeared (as far as I can tell) on literally hundreds of radio and TV shows. He also claims to have more than 20 experts backing him up.
Readers of WorldNetDaily would do well to ask themselves what Dr. Corsi has to fear from a computer guy in Springfield, Missouri who’s only ever appeared as a radio guest 3 times in his life.
Those who’ve carefully read the book, though, may have some idea. And it’s clear that Corsi himself is familiar with the book, as he mentioned it in the course of our brief conversation.
