The media has been trying to drive the agenda for some time now. All this non-sense about Russia trying to change the outcome of elections when the media actively attempts to steer the direction of elections, this isn't just in the USA but in all western democracies. What's happening in the US is a travesty and the same is happening in Canada. The risk is those who listen to the media and believe what they are being told.

So, Penn, DiCaprio and DeNiro should "shut up and entertain us", but Denzel should be listened to?

I hate limiting the right of free speech. I especially emcourage the likes of Penn, DeNiro, and DiCaprio to speak their minds. In fact I highly encourage liberals to speak their minds; be as loud and vocal as possible.

Well stated. The problem, I feel, isn't being given too much information or even the wrong information. The problem is the person receiving the information. A person should be intelligent enough to see the bullshit being fed to them. The person serving the bullshit can be disguised in many different ways, but if a person is aware enough to realize that they are being served bullshit, the server simply look like a fool, and has no credibility.

Yes, those that follow facts know all about the Russian interference. Those that follow fake alt right news and opinion (Bratbart, RT, fox prime time opinion, Conrad black, etc) and complain with fake righteousness about the MSM do themselves a great disservice.

I think there is a pretty significant distinction to be made between a foreign nation trying to influence the outcome of a US election, and an internal entity doing it (whether it be the media, a PAC, a rich asshole, etc).

I think the internal money involved it US election influence is bad enough, but foreign nations better stay the fuck out of it.

So the US never tried to influence foreign elections?

No I agree with you foreign states need to stay out of our elections. At the same time we cannot allow corporations such as Google from doing the same.

I 1000% agree with you - so long as you are saying "all" corporations, and not just ones "such as google..."

He was asked a question by someone expecting a totally difference answer then she thought she was going to get. She threw a lib softball but he hit it out of the park to the opposite field.
Being asked a question and answering it honestly is completely different then what The Three Stooges you mentioned do day in and day out. They’re on a mission. I didn’t hear Denzel say he wants to beat the crap out any Democrats or use foul language disparaging the President on tv for the whole nation to see including kids.
Your Rabid Hollywood libs should take a lesson from the class and style demonstrated by Mr. Washington. Yet another reason why dems will lose AGAIN in 2020.

Way to post a video from 2016.

I agree that there has been a race to be the first, but that's been part of journalism for quite a long time. Hearst and Pullizer were both terrible with this, it's nothing new.

To politicize this to say "Yeah libs, he owned that reporter" is disingenuous.

Or maybe nobody in the MSM wants to hear from Mr. Washington now that they know his views don't align with the current push to progressive virtue signalling.
