Allow me to draw a cinematic analogy that I've used before but that fits so well. Near end of the great, elegiac lament to the passing of the old west, "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," powerful U.S. Senator Ransom Stoddard, played by Jimmy Stewart, returns to his home town out west and confesses to the newspaper editor that his legendary reputation, his entire career, was based on a lie. Up until then, everyone believed that in his youth, Stoddard had shot and killed the notorious villain Liberty Valance (played by Lee Marvin). Now, at long last, Stoddard is coming clean, telling the world that Valance was really shot by a tough-as-nails rancher, played by the great John Wayne. The newspaper editor, having heard the entire story and believing every word of it, is not interested in publishing any of it.
"You're not going to use the story, Mr. Scott?" Stoddard asks incredulously.
The editor famously replies: "No, sir. This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."
This is the Matriarchy, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.
