Leonard Pitts Jr.: A solution to the problem of roaring mouths saying nothing – ContraCostaTimes.com

Robert Kilmer has had enough. And he proposes a solution. Namely, a television series in which public figures debate the issues of the day under two simple rules: (1) the participants must answer questions directly and, (2) they just do so without making reference to their opponent’s argument, party or ideology.

“In other words,” says Kilmer, “you have to show up with a solution and defend it. You’re going to be asked follow-up questions. Your statements are going to be fact checked in real time and appear on the screen.” The moderator will be empowered to enforce those rules.
