this was just refreshing to hear and see. video in the link.

Last week, on the red carpet for his new film Fences, he was asked about the phenomenon of fake news and in particular a fake news story regarding him (it claimed he’d switched his election support from Clinton to Trump). Denzel masterfully turned the question back on the reporter.

Asked what he made of it, he said: “If you don’t read the newspaper you’re uninformed. If you do read it you’re misinformed.”

Absolutely brilliant!

Denzel's a wise man as well as one of our greatest actors

The uninformed vote democrat, the misinformed republican.

Or, wait, is it the other way around?

I heard it once described another way... we have the party of no ideas versus the party of dumb ideas.

I don't think the MSM is going to take much time to share that comment.

What's the point of what? I think you misunderstood then...

I'm merely quoting him from one of my favorite movies, and sharing another moment of wisdom from him. What's wrong with that?
