“If you do not read a newspaper, you are not informed; if you do, you are misinformed .” Denzel Washington

Hardly of ground breaking consequence one might say.

The lamentable truth is that news has become a quasi-Soap Opera. It spawns theories and fuels the gossipping masses. It is not news at all. This is infotainment.

As Denzel Washington summed up: “The more you do something the better you get at it; so the media has become great at BS!”.

One reporter decided enough was enough ( I love this guy!):
