    Even high school debate teams know that facts are merely the building blocks of a narrative.  Whether pro or con, you work from the same facts.

    Ditto courtroom lawyers.

    There's a reason why we need the word "truth" to go along with the word "fact".  You can build the truth with facts, but you can also build a lie.
