the (bare) facts, bare facts, basic facts
"King, a former newsman, was so excited, he said 'engine' instead of 'engines'. He had no script and stuck to the (bare) facts."
What's the difference between 'the bare facts' and 'the facts' in the above sentence?
And what's the distinction between 'the bare facts of the case' and 'the basic facts of the case' in the below sentence?
She gave me only the bare/basic facts of the case.
