tough call.  There is a close play at second base. Was he out or safe?  You look at the replays from the center field camera and he looks out.  You look at the replays from the camera behind 3rd base and he looks safe. Which was it? Was one of the cameras lying? (no--cameras are inanimate objects that just film whatever they are looking at).  Well, people are like that too. They look at the same thing from different perspectives and see different things.

it's why, in science, we try to h ave as many observations as possible to make the most informed judgment we can.  There is always a fundamental truth of the situation, but being biased in t he result sets can and does lead to incorrect conclusions.

The issue is, you need to take time to get informed of all observations before making the proper informed one, but nowadays we just like to 'cut to the chase", "give me the tl:dr", "What's the crux of it".
