London Guardian bashes Sheen
Weak British hit piece suggests Sheen is living in a false celebrity world and "confusing fact and fiction"
The London Guardian today became the latest mainstream outlet to attack Charlie Sheen on matters unrelated to his comments this week.
This is one of the weakest hit pieces we have seen yet. Not only are the facts of the matter not debated, they are not even mentioned. The so called journalist, Marina Hyde, immediately dismisses Sheen as "insane" without a response to any of the statements she quotes.
She then babbles her way into personal attacks, waxing lyrical about how mad and lonely celebrities such as Spike Lee, Michael Jackson, Tom Cruise and Sting must be and throws in the ubiquitous "If you say something's a conspiracy you're talking about Jews" line that we've heard and yawned over a million times before.
Charlie Sheen has not spoken out about 9/11 in some kind of attempt to boost his celebrity status. This has nothing to do with "celebrities", he is an American citizen who, like 82 % of Americans, according to the latest opinion poll, believe there is a massive cover up over 9/11 and demand an independent investigation.
The print version of the article carries a picture of Sheen from the movie Hot Shots, where he is bare chested, looking crazed and has the Rambo red headband tied around his head. This is clearly designed to detract from the seriousness of Sheen's brave actions and paint him up as a crazy nutcase.
Charlie Sheen and the MAJORITY of Americans are not confucsing "fact and fiction" nor living on another planet when they ask for clarity and truth from their government concerning THE BIGGEST EVENT OF MODERN HISTORY that has changed our way of life for ever.
We are not the ones spending our professional lives thinking and writing about "showbiz" and what celebrities are having for lunch. The people living in the real world are SICK of having to sift through this crap to actually engage with reality.
Next to the Sheen article in the print version of Miss Hyde's Guardian column there is a ground breaking and vitally important photograph of a sculpture of Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug. Should we just SHUT UP about 9/11 and the erosion of our liberty in its aftermath and debate this instead?
The article has no redeeming features, no meaning and no discernable conclusion. How this ever got printed in the London Guardian is anyone's guess.
He's a right Charlie
Mr Sheen is the latest celebrity to confuse fact and fiction
Pay attention, civilians. Actor Charlie Sheen has been focusing his mind on the official explanation for 9/11. And you know what? He's not buying it. "It just didn't look like any commercial jetliner I've flown on any time in my life," the Hotshots Part Deux star told a US radio station this week, "and then when the buildings came down later on that day, I said to my brother 'call me insane', but did it sorta look like those buildings came down in a controlled demolition?"
You're insane. Next.
"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory."
But it is George Bush's assertion that he saw the first plane hit the north tower of the World Trade Centre before any footage of it had been released that tells Charlie he's on to something. "I guess one of the perks of being president is that you get access to TV channels that don't exist in the known universe," he continued in a manner which in no way suggests he once had a monstrous coke problem. "It might lead you to believe that he'd seen similar images in some type of rehearsal as it were, I don't know."
Mmm. For many celebrities, conspiracy theories are the VIP rooms of history. Sure, you'll have your Earl Warrens and your senate investigations patrolling the velvet rope, but if you know the right people, and have access to enormous quantities of self-regard, you can get through to the inner sanctum where they tell you It's All A Big Lie.
Frankly, with dentistry as expensive as yours, you simply can't afford to let The Man stamp his jackboot down on your face, and so it is that when faced with the inquiry "did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone?", you find yourself thinking: "God, I mean ... do any of us? Like, he had to have people, you know? At least an agent and a publicist."
Anyway, back to Charlie. "It feels like from the people I talk to in and around my circles," he blathers on, "it seems like the worm is turning."
It's hard to be sure who's in his circles, but you'd have to think there'd be a seat in the Sheen kitchen cabinet for Spike Lee, who last year told CNN he suspected the Bush administration had blown up the levees in New Orleans.
"Remember the film Chinatown?" he began promisingly, "where they flooded the LA basin ... I believe that it's not too far-fetched to think that, look, we got a bunch of poor black people here. We got to save these other neighbourhoods. What we got to do, dump this in this ward, boom. I believe it. I don't put anything past the US government."
Also taking a position round the table comes this column's beloved Tom Cruise, who famously dismisses psychiatry as a big conspiracy. Which is a little like a dehydrated man claiming water is a conspiracy. And completing the quartet is Michael Jackson, who not only claims all his recent legal bother was a vast plot against him, but was taped espousing the oldest conspiracy of all: it's the Jews! And they're targeting people in the, um, entertainment industry. "They [the Jews] suck them like leeches," he whined in a telephone call played to a courtroom last year. "I'm so tired of it. They start out the most popular person in the world, make a lot of money, big house, cars and everything and end up penniless. It's a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose."
Michael? You're wanted back on Planet Earth. Well, in a way.
So lonely? He must be
Ever since he cemented his eco-warrior credentials by advertising a huge gas-guzzling Jaguar, the world has wondered: what's the next inspired idea Sting's going to have? The wait is over. He's opening a lapdancing club.
God knows there are times we've all thought, "Sod the rainforest: let's go to Spearmint Rhino," but few of us have been committed enough to raise the money to stick in the bank's knickers and open one up.
Happily, Sting is all set to do just that by bringing a branch of the Forty Deuce chain of strip clubs to Manhattan, where the local press reports he is famous for insisting lapdancers keep their clothes on while performing for him. Which is not at all the sort of preposterous affectation you'd expect from the old boy.
Of course, it wasn't long ago that Sting was publicly berating Middle East leaders for failing to heed the message in his song Desert Rose, so it'll be nice to have a ready-made entertainment emporium to whisk delegations off to after any summits he's planning.
