It is no secret that the mainstream media is responsible for continually perpetuating lies and an abundance of misinformation. Denzel Washington tackled this very topic in a recent interview where he angrily explained how tired he is of the lies that are thrown around. It doesn’t matter whether it is true. It just matters if you get people to view and share your articles and videos.
According to Denzel Washington you really can’t win in the current news and political situation.
“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed,” Washington told the Hill at the premiere of his latest film Tuesday night. “Just say it, sell it. Anything you practice you’ll get good at — including BS.”
He issued a call, almost begging news producers and the general public to not perpetuate and share the abundance of lies. You simply cannot know how many people you are hurting in these situations. It is so much worse than you might think when you perpetuate misinformation.
Denzel Washington puts it perfectly here:
“So what a responsibility you all have — to tell the truth,” he said at a recent red carpet event. “In our society, now it’s just first — who cares, get it out there. We don’t care who it hurts. We don’t care who we destroy. We don’t care if it’s true.”
So do not be afraid to fact check. Stop letting your mind and opinions get pushed around by lies.
