Denzel Drops Some Zen-Like Musings On the Media

During the presidential election, fake news — mostly damaging to Hillary Clinton — was spread like a computer virus, infecting readers via social media, with Twitter and Facebook serving as the main hosts for these bottom feeders. According to U.S. intelligence agencies, Russia is believed to have played a major role in churning out this propaganda that even the mainstream media got caught up in, as part of an effort to elect Donald Trump and one of the mostly widely shared, patently untrue stories was about Denzel Washington. In a fake article that went viral, the actor supposedly said that he was switching his support to Trump.

When asked about the proliferation of bogus reports at a recent event for his latest film Fences, Washington responded like a profound warrior monk. “If you don’t read the newspaper you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed.”

After dropping that quick mindfuck, he was pressed on what the public should do. “That’s a great question,” he said. “What is the long-term effect of too much information?” He then made his signature crazy face and barked out lines from Training Day, like: “To protect the sheep you gotta catch the wolf, and it takes a wolf to catch a wolf.” Just kidding, he offered a very sobering assessment about the media’s tendency to rush items without properly confirming them.

“One of the effects is the need to be first, not even to be true anymore,” he continued. “So what a responsibility you all have; to tell the truth, not to just be first, but to tell the truth.”
