The Plain Truth is a Human tabloid talk show broadcast on Spectrum and hosted by former New United reporter Parker Terrell. It premiered in 2944, in the wake of a widely reported upon, three-month disappearance by Terrell. After his sudden reappearance, Terrell was fired by his former employers and established Plain Truth. The show is filmed on Terra (Terra III). It currently operates as an independent investigative unit, focusing on controversial and sensationalist Human interest and political stories. The show is often critical of the United Empire of Earth (UEE) government.
