"Anything you practise, you'll get good at"

I don't know exactly where he was, or who asked the question, but Denzel Washington was being asked what he thought about the 'fake news' situation. Here was his candid response:

"If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you do read it, you're misinformed."

Journalist: "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 a responsibility you all have. To tell the truth, not just to be first. 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. Say it. Sell it. Anything you practise, you'll get good at. Including BS. OK? But you heard me? It makes sense?"

Here's some of that video.
