The current pack of viewpoints are referred to as News.

A fact, a truth - well that is an incontrovertible reality.

See the hole?
That is a bullet hole. That is a fact. That is truth you can see. Stick your finger into the opening.
Truth you can touch,

You note that one, perhaps, cannot see a hole?
Cannot touch a hole?


Ah, truth - how elusive you are.

Hey, anymore bullets in this thing?
