40 years ago to the day Dr. Who had this to say about facts

It is a fact that TV can be odd. Sunday was January 22 and Kellyann Konway stated a statement about facts. Forty Years before this Dr. Who had another statement about facts. “In “The Face of Evil: Part Four,” which premiered on Jan. 22, 1977, the Doctor tries to make peace between the Saveteem and Tesh tribes. In the middle of the episode, the Doctor tells his future companion Leela :

You know, the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don’t alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit the views.

Of course, whether or not you think the quote summarizes the current political climate is a matter of opinion. That’s how opinions work. But the the facts are and will remain the facts. And here’s one fact for which there is no alternative: The audience on Friday was not the largest one to ever witness an inauguration, period” (huffington post, 2017.)
