Veracity of accuracy or sincerity

[Debashish Sun 16 Nov 2008 Re: Orissa court There is no preventing this struggle... Terms which have been misappropriated (and which will not go away however much one likes to close one's eyes to their existence) need to be reinterpreted. At least that's how I see it. -- Debashish Sat 15 Nov 2008 Re: Orissa court stays release of book on Sri Aurobindo (the next Satanic Verses -taindian news)]

Now how to check the veracity of such magisterial pronouncements? Angiras being a pseudonym further complicates the matter. [TNM]
