From a tweet from Epsilon Theory.

Why is there no such thing as a false narrative? Because true/false doesn't exist in Information Theory. A signal is informationally strong if it changes our mind about the world, informationally weak if it doesn't. Zero relationship to Truth with a capital T.

The narrative wins.
