Denzel lays the smackdown on RNN

You may have already read my story about how Denzel stopped by Mount Vernon this week, but check out RNN’s video on the visit. Towards the end, you’ll see Denzel “go Training Day” on anchor Andrew Whitman.

But don’t get it twisted, Andrew Whitman is the baddest suspendered journalist on the planet. While all the other networks were asking Denzel fluff questions, the RNN titan asked Denzel if Mount Vernon was placing more emphasis on saving its sports programs rather than its teachers. Denzel fired back with an Oscar-worthy performance.
