Lewandowski has no obligation to be honest with the media

The media have no obligation to be honest with us

And that is the New Media Reality

That’s the dirty secret to our entire society it seems: no one is really obligated to treat anyone with any respect or decency, and the only real camaraderie is in banding together to demean and disrespect groups too weak or too small to fight back. Any assumption of inherent dignity will only result in being taken advantage of by those strong enough and smart enough to take advantage of you until they shiv you.

It’s a cynical, nihilistic, and inherently bleak worldview. But looking at who gets to succeed in our country, and the deference those who hide nothing about their shittiness receive, it’s apparently the most realistic one.
