By now it should come as no surprise that the old and tired established media is living out its final days. What is surprising is how quickly the traditional media’s death is approaching.
The lying and misinformation spewed out by the mainstream media, in collusion with Hillary Clinton, did not help prolong their life. The doubling down on the “fake news”, “Russia did it”, false narrative definitely did not help the mainstream media salvage any life left in those tired legs.
Trump showed that you do not need to go through the traditional media to reach voters (oh how the mainstream suits must hate him for that).
When you see hollywood, the most liberal left of all groups, begin blasting the media for its misinformation, lies, and unprofessional behavior…then you know its all but over for the mainstream.
The Hill reports on Oscar award winning actor, Denzel Washington’s recent tirade against the media and their deceptive, duplicitous ways.
At one point Denzel rightly notes about the press…“Just say it, sell it. Anything you practice you’ll get good at — including BS.”
“If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed,” Washington, the star and director behind the new film “Fences,” told ITK at the Wednesday premiere inside the National Museum of African American History and Culture.”Fences,” based on an award-winning play of the same name, also features Viola Davis and centers on the life of a black family in 1950s Pittsburgh. It is set to be released on Christmas.
Washington was the subject of a phony story earlier this year that falsely claimed he was switching his support of then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to GOP White House hopeful Donald Trump.
One of the effects of “too much information,” the 61-year-old Oscar winner says, is “the need to be first, not even to be true anymore.”
“So what a responsibility you all have — to tell the truth,” Washington exclaimed to the pack of reporters gathered on the red carpet.
“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,” Washington continued.
