chuck palahniuk, "lullaby"

“The problem with every story is you tell it after the fact.

Even play-by-play description on the radio, the home runs and strikeout, even that’s delayed a few minutes. Even live television is postponed a couple seconds.

Even sound and light can only go so fast.

Another problem is the teller. The who, what, where, when, and why of the reporter. The media bias. How the messenger shapes the facts. What journalists call The Gatekeeper. How the presentation is everything.

The story behind the story.”
