Denzel Washington Calls Out Media: If You Read The Newspaper, 'You're Misinformed'

Denzel Washington is calling out mainstream media for sometimes pushing out stories with false information!

“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed,” the 61-year-old actor recently expressed while promoting his new film Fences.

“What is the long-term effect of too much information? One of the effects is the need to be first, not even to be true anymore. So what responsibility do you all have?,” Denzel asked the reporter. “To tell the truth. Not just to be first. But to tell the truth. We live in a society now where its just be first, who cares just get it out, we don’t care who it hurts, we don’t care who we destroy, we don’t care if it’s true. Just say it, sell it. Anything you practice, you will get good at, including B.S.”
