When reporting or writing about public controversies facts are key to the story, but should they be the only part of the story. With the case of Adams Vs. Michaels we see how writing with raw facts can lead to a different picture. While it is good to have facts laid out for the reader to form their own opinion, the lens they are looking through must not be distorted. While the writer, Laurens, wrote everything she took down and nothing could be disputed as non-fact, not all the information was collected. While the Mayor, Adams, did accused Michaels of falsifying information and Michaels made a denial nothing was done to report the other side of the story leaving Michaels to deal with the aftermath. While facts are important, so is context. So the answer is no, sometimes we need more then the facts to paint us a better picture. The difference between truth and fact is, fact being the correct information while truth may be all the information.

A. I believe that accurate facts are satisfactory enough when covering a public controversy. You do not want to seem biased towards one side when covering something because it can then skew an uninformed mind, and even though each person could have their own feelings towards a situation, it is best to be fair and present all information that one can give so each person can form their own opinions. B. Facts are information that cannot be argued against and truths are more based on one's belief's. Like some believe that God is real and that is their truth and others do not.

************************ Student Response #3 ***************************

In public controversies, it is important to report facts accurately and fairly. However, it is not only enough to report facts accurately and fairly but also more important to report the truth about the facts. For instance, the reporter dwelled so much on Mayor’s accusation against councilman instead of finding out the truth about the accusations first. In addition, fair and accurate reporting might not depict justice to the truth. This is because starting facts alone does not justify the truth. More research needs to be done in order to bring out the entire truth and reasoning behind the subject. Reporter Lauren reported on facts which were one-sided but did not take time to find out if indeed pesticides affect bird’s life as well as if mayor’s allegations against Councilman were true or not. From the case, there is a clear difference between facts and truth. Firstly, a fact is a stated argument about a situation. A fact might not be combated with more meaning and reasoning. On the other hand, a truth is a meaningful and accurate statements about a situation or a fact. A fact can be untrue or true. For instance, a fact from the case study is seen when the mayor accused the councilman of being paid by a manufacturer to conceal the truth about effect of pesticides on birds.
