A fact is a truth, something that has already happened or can be verified or proven to be the case. (source unknown)

It’s amazing what so many instant, live, on-demand media sources have done to our collective understanding. Or lack thereof.

Surely you have noticed how many different interpretations there are of the same event happening at the same time and in the same place.

A fact is a truth, something that has already happened or can be verified or proven to be the case. Like the truth, some facts are unpleasant, and will not change just because you don’t believe in them. A fact doesn’t care; a fact just is.
