Denzel Washington Slams Mainstream Media For Peddling “Bullshit”

From Zero Hedge

Denzel Washington had some “news” for the mainstream media peddling the narrative that the presidential election turned on “fake news:” It’s all bullshit.

Despite finding himself previously in the center of a “fake news” story, which falsely claimed the actor was switching his support of Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump, Washington still slammed the media implying it was no better than those “fake” outlets it criticizes.

“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.
