Reporter: What do you make of all of this “fake news” and all of it’s effects?
Washington: If you don’t read the newspaper you’re uninformed, if you do read it you’re misinformed.
Reporter: So what do you do?
Washington: 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 a responsibility you all have…
To tell the truth! Not just to be first but to tell the truth!
We live in a society now where 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 can get good at. Including BS.
