You think people in one town over are gonna be any better? No. Human nature, it’s surprisingly universal, and it’s universally disappointing.[to Bradley]

You ever played pinball, Alex? Pinball. There are those bumpers on there. Their only purpose is to knock the crap out of your ball and put you off your game. Now, the more punishment you take, the more points you can rack up, but you can’t pay attention to them. It’s just noise. You gotta steel your nerves, keep your eye on the ball because the game, it’s actually down at the flippers. And the flippers, they can send that ball flying up the ramp so fast, it’ll make your head spin and that’s where you score the real points. You just have to let the flippers do the work.

The news is changing. And the news is changing because the people who deliver the news, who showed themselves as honest and decent and trustworthy, have in quite a few cases now proved themselves to be untruthful. And as a result, I think people are wanting more transparency in journalism. I think they want to know the person behind the facade. I think they want to trust that the person that is telling them the truth about the world is an honest person.
