There is more or less favoritism in every company, so here too there are those who enjoy some privileges that others do not. However, I don't understand why many managers' favorites are those who generally do not do their job well? Why aren't the best employees their favorites instead? It really annoys me when I see how the laziest here enjoy all sorts of protection from the manager.

Ask MM or BC , where did 20 mil dollars go when they tried to not be favoritists and what happened of the tech division afterwards. They’ll teach you a lesson or two about shady management techniques.
It’s depends on how you Define best here. If best is defined s as the one who gives a person the happiest possible feeling, then promoting sycophants is not that unreasonable.
