The Difference Between Opinion And Fact

August 27, 2020

The difference between opinion and fact is that an opinion is something you think while a fact like a measurement of miles just exists.  Opinions are for the op-ed section while facts are for other stories.  Facts are facts.  They exist, they mean something, and they must be repeated. A fact is solid, while an opinion is not necessarily solid. Opinions wiggle around, changing ever so slightly.  Facts are grounded, rooted in reality, and meaningful.  An opinion is something that could change into something different, all the time.  It is not a number, or a reality-based statement.
