Ashton Kutcher Talks About “Truth” And “Honesty” In New Video

By: Stefanie Blejec / October 21, 2011

Ashton Kutcher has upgraded his defense by dappling in a new medium: check out his video (watch it here) treatise on the evolving nature of truth in publishing. Sounding a smidge like he’s addressing a Philosophy 101 class, he says:

“I just wanted to open up a little dialogue on the state of honesty. The state of truth. The status of truth as it pertains to literature and media… Publishers (once) held great scrutiny over what they were willing to print because their reputation was on the line. When the cost structure comes down on printing… the level of honesty of literature starts to plummet… I started thinking about that in relation to media and social media today where the threshold to actually have literature printed and distributed… is zero dollars… thereby there is no gatekeeper of the truth…We are our own editors, we are our own publishers and we are our own printers. Therefore, people can bastardize the truth in any way, shape or form that they want and spread that around the world…”

The only thing I took away from that was “bastard.” What to you guys think of Ashton’s vid? [Starpulse]
