Someone once asked: "When it comes to doing newspaper work, what is the most difficult thing to write?"
The answer is easy, I said. "Quite often, the most difficult thing to write is the truth."
He gave me an odd look, as if to suggest that the truth should be the easiest thing to write.
I explained that writing the truth can be the most difficult for many reasons.
One reason is that the truth isn't necessarily clear; we don't always know what the truth is. The second reason is that people often don't want to know the truth.
