What to do when the facts don't fit the narrative?

Ban/Cut/Suppress the person(s) who points it out of course.
Apparently, Neil Cavuto got quite a bit of pushback after he raged at and cut the microphone of Democrat Julian Epstein over the weekend.

Cavuto said:
These issues surround us my friends, and to minimize their threat or slope them off as individual incidents, each bearing no resemblance to the other, makes a mockery of us all. That is why I got angry. That is why I interrupted Julian who is otherwise a friend. This is foolish, and that is why after repeated attempts to get him to shut up about making this a political discussion I simply decided to cut his mike.
What we have here in the United States of America  is a convenient constitution for some of the people.

It's OK  to try to aid your friend if you are a republican.

Remember when the republicans said "If you're not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about." when Bush was the President?
Republicans were infuriated by the “breaking news” that Obama and the NSA have been listening to our phone conversations. They conveniently forget that it was George W. Bush who directed the NSA to start this eavesdropping program. In fact, PBS/Frontline ran a program that explained the surveillance program in great detail with interviews of the Bush Administration officials involved. Frontline ran the original report on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and there was nothing said by Republicans. The report was re-run on April 11, 2013 with additional footage on the Boston Marathon Bombing. This was less than two months ago, and again, not a peep was heard from Republicans. But now the NSA surveillance under the Obama Administration dovetails nicely with the IRS “scandal”, so the radical right is up-in-arms and in full scandal mode.
If you have to suppress dissent in order to have the last word that means your words aren't right (no pun intended), and the facts don't fit the narrative.
