Facts are Facts

I posted this on Reddit, but the sensors removed it without explanation.

On September 8, 2004, less than two months before the 2004 US Presidential election a letter from 1972 surfaced that disparaged George W Bush’s military service. The letter was widely broadcast on all US news networks. It was a proven fact. Later someone with sharp eyes realized the type font was Times New Roman. No typewriter in 1972 could have produced the letter. It was done in Microsoft Word where Times New Roman was the default font. The media never backed down. A new term was coined “Fake but Accurate.” How does this reconcile to your “Fact are Facts?” Who decides what is a fact? Why do you believe they’re telling the truth?
