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

Denzel Washington said while discussing the media, during an interview at a red carpet event for his film Fences.
Denzel Washington as Robert McCall says this to Marton Csokas' character Teddy, in Antoine Fuqua's film The Equalizer, based on the 1980's television series of the same name. McCall had just dispatched yet another group of Russian gangsters that Teddy had sent to kill him. The gangsters were sitting at a restaurant table eating with Teddy, describing how sure they were that they could "take care of him." The thugs get up to leave and moments later McCall enters the restaurant, sits at Teddy's table and gives him these words of wisdom... along with the bloodied sun glasses of one of the assassins.
