Quotable George Clooney

Quoting from USA Today:

The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous. We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal.

This is Clooney taking the Daily Mail to task over the misrepresentation and lies they frequently publish in their paper and online. In this case, the lies had to do with his fiancée’s mother — her religion, her opposition to the relationship — thus creating the potential for serious problems down the road should readers believe any of it.

The Daily Mail, more than any other organization that calls itself news, has proved time and time again that facts make no difference in the articles they make up. And when they put my family and my friends in harm’s way, they cross far beyond just a laughable tabloid and into the arena of inciting violence.

Well said.
