Celebrities in Hollywood have mostly been insufferable over the past year. Leading up to the 2016 presidential election, they all mindlessly rallied around Hillary Clinton, while telling everyone who dared question her abilities that they were racist bigots if they didn’t vote for Clinton come November.
By trying to pass themselves off as morally superior geniuses, they set themselves up for huge failure if Clinton were to lose. So when she lost to Donald Trump in a landslide defeat, Hollywood liberals rushed to the press to blame everyone except the mainstream media.
However, Academy Award winner Denzel Washington was not willing to fall in line with many of his Hollywood peers. In fact, he completely stood against them and called out the mainstream media outlets for their corruption. As surprising as it is, given the fact that most people in the entertainment industry are sitting so far left that they are beyond repair, Denzel is not afraid to call it like he sees it.
Judy Kurtz of The Hill reports that Washington said of the mainstream media, “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed. … 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. Just say it, sell it. Anything you practice you’ll get good at — including BS.”
Hopefully a respectable figure like Washington standing up for truth will inspire many Americans to do the same. Given the fact that he is well respected among numerous different groups, you have to expect that people are paying close attention to what he is saying. Of course, there’s still the chance that the Regressive Left will try to paint him as an “Uncle Tom” – a racist slur that they have become far too comfortable using – or as a conservative shill, but we can hope otherwise.
There need to be more people coming out in support of news outlets that are actually telling the truth instead of merely trying to collect page views. That is all the mainstream media has become in recent memory, and they are in need of a complete overhaul if they want to be taken seriously ever again. If not, at least we have the alternative media to provide honest coverage. Things are changing – and thankfully the likes of Denzel realize that.
