expose the impenetrable


Senior Member
Hello everyone,

From the book Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman.

In my two memos to Bojia I explained that there is no set formula for writing a column, no class you attend, and that everyone does it differently to some degree. But there were some general guidelines I could offer. When you are a reporter, your focus is on digging up facts to explain the visible and the complex and to unearth and expose the impenetrable and the hidden—wherever that takes you. You are there to inform, without fear or favor.

Does "expose the impenetrable" mean expose the things that are difficult to understand?

Thank you.
