Hooray for Denzel!

Hooray for Denzel!

I bet this one will never see the light of day on national TV again. Denzel Washington needs to get on FOX News or Meet The Press...even Tim Russert would at least listen. Did you see the Denzel Washington interview with Katie Couric on NBC last Friday morning (13 AUG 04)? Not many people are talking about it. They're wishing it would go away and are trying to sweep it under the rug. Meryl Streep and Denzel were on the today show "live" with Katie Couric to talk about the movie "Manchurian Candidate." At one point Katie asked Denzel, "Have you seen Fahrenheit 9/11?" To which Denzel replied, "No, and I have no intention of seeing it." Katie and Meryl were "so noticeably" taken aback! It was so cool! Then, a discourse (or more preferably, a fight!) began between all three of them with Denzel being barraged with all kinds of anti-Bush, anti-republican comments, but the man stood his ground and soon enraged the women so much that they couldn't get a word in edgewise.Meryl Streep turned blood red and she sat with her legs crossed and her one leg shaking up and down, fuming! Then Katie uttered the words that put the final nail in her coffin, she said to Denzel, "You see, that's the problem I have with 'you people'." She of course did not get to finish her sentence because Denzel pounced on her verbally by responding, "YOU PEOPLE! --YOU PEOPLE! Just what do you mean you people! Do you mean "You People" as in me as a Christian, or do you mean "You People" as in me as a REPUBLICAN? She then tap danced her way through the next minute of the show. But Denzel went out fighting, declaring that Fahrenheit 9/11 is nothing but propaganda and lies distorted to support a cynical democratic film director's views. Now there's a celebrity who deserves to wear the uniform in movies.

Wish I had seen the show. Always new Denzel was a good man, that smile should tell you. I refuse to watch The Today Show but wish they would do a rerun. Maybe FOX could pick it up.
Have fun on your trip.

Not true...this was a grossly distorted version of the actual interview, a transcript of which can be found at:
