Why don't we call the other, "Non truth"?

Good writing is good writing. I love writing, and reading "truth."
Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath, wasn't fiction. It was truth.

Weekly newspapers are called "non-dailies." Why not call dailies, "Non-weeklies"?

So is John McPhee, and sometimes I get close, as with "Losing my right arm."
