    Hi,

    I have difficulty in understanding the following passage. Could anyone do me a favor?

    More specifically, this affirmation of a specifc obligation to the reader was typically framed on the basis of a commitment to exposing the truth about public affairs, regardless of the consequences, and not matter how unpalatable.

    Thanks a lot.

    The writer feels obligated and committed to reveal the truth about the public affairs (presumably referring to the corruption within the public administration? = unpalatable=distasteful) regardless of what will happen to him after he reveals the truth to the public.
