 “Hard writing makes easy reading.  Easy writing makes hard reading.”   —   William Zinsser

(Kind of like the journalistic version of:  Garbage in, garbage out.  If you put in the necessary effort to write something well, it will be easily understood.  But, if you just throw something together, haphazardly, then the reader may very well be confused.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
