Facts vs. Rumor, Legend, or Myth

"People will generally accept facts as truth only if the facts agree with what they already believe." Andy Rooney

This explains why gossip seems so much more powerful than verifiable metrics. People are looking for facts that agree with their opinions, and if they can't find them, they'll just stick with their opinions. Sigh.
