Why is it that outsiders understand the news and media business better than insiders? Because they don’t have blinders on. And that’s why when a reporter asked Hollywood star Denzel Washington to comment on fake news, he got straight to the heart of the matter:
If you don’t read the newspaper you are uniformed. If you do read it, you are misinformed.
What is the long-term effect of too much information? One of the effects is the need to be first, not be true anymore.
Your responsibility is to tell the truth and not be first. We live in a society where it is who’s first, who cares, get it out. We don’t who it hurts. We don’t care who it destroys. Just say it, sell it.
