I remember reading an interview with the producers who made The Wire, in which they said that even though the point of the show was to portray the gritty reality of the drug problem, they still made a creative decision not to make the show "too real" and to add in lighter moments of humour and other storytelling techniques, because otherwise it would have been too depressing to watch.

I guess it depends on! I particulary like fiction more, I never got attached to a real character enough to write about it. But I bet the process of collecting the information and everything round it must be really interesting.
I like a lot Umberto Eco non-fiction/fiction. The pendule of Foucault was incredible, even if the characters weren't real, it talked the all long story of religion in a really interesting way.
Also, it makes the tour on the Art et Metiers Museum really special
