    Hello.
    I'm not sure about the meaning of "fictional reality". So...I'm afraid I can't help you.
    What is it?

    1. It took him years to understand that he was living in fictional reality. I'd use 'a', See what others think.
    2. The media are not primarily interested in the truth but [add 'in' for paralellism, but not many people care!] making profit and creating fictional reality.
    3. Even today it is difficult dto differentiate the truth from fictional reality. (apart from the obvious typo)
