*TV One host Roland Martin called out Fox News host Bill O’Reilly over the weekend, labeling him a “despicable coward” for refusing to debate #BlackLivesMatter activists on his show.

In an interview with The Wrap, Martin accused O’Reilly and his Fox colleague Sean Hannity of “lying to their audience and painting a picture that is shameful and despicable.”

O’Reilly has compared Black Lives Matter activists to Nazis, while Hannity has said they are no different than the Ku Klux Klan. Martin, for his part, told O’Reilly on his show to “shut the hell up” about the issue.

Martin then suggested that he himself would be willing to go on the show and debate the issue: “I will challenge Bill O’Reilly anytime, any day. I will come to his studio, I will wait, I will take my show off and debate him on this.”

Martin, a former CNN contributor, predicted that O’Reilly wouldn’t accept his invitation, saying the “wimp” had turned down all his other challenges.

“They do not want their audience to be exposed to the truth,” he said.

  1. Roland,

    O’Reilly will only turn your microphone off so that you can’t speak. This is part of his stunt when he’s losing the argument/debate.

    African Americans are wasting their time by going on O’Reilly and Hannity’s show. Please don’t bother.

  2. J. is absolutely correct. It is a total waste of time for black people to go on either one of those freaks’ shows to “debate” anything.

    They can’t handle the truth at Faux Noise…

    Keep telling the truth about those lying scumbags Roland.

  3. J and Nicholas, that is so true. Why even bother going on the show. It’s a step up. You can’t win an argument on that show. Same goes for Sean Hannity show. Hell, most of the Foxnews shows. They are a joke!!!
