Fake News : What can we do?

fake-news-invasion

This is not a step by step guide. Here’s the philosophy to deal with fake news. 

If you don’t read news you are uninformed. If you do read it, you are misinformed. ( This is a quote of Mark Twain, of course ).

So what do you do ? That’s a great question. What is the long term effect of too much information ? One of the effects is the need to be first, not even to be true anymore. So what is the responsibility you all have ? To tell the truth. Not just to be first. We live in a society that is just.. it’s first, who cares, get it out there, we don’t care whom it hurts, we don’t care whom we destroy, we don’t care if it is true. Just say it. Sell it. Anything you practice, you get good at, including …..BS.

You heard me? Does that make sense?

And Who said these words? Denzel Washington.

I searched the web for this video’s transcript. Could not find it, hence I typed it. It’s totally worth it.
