Milton on Truth

Milton speaks out for free speech and argues that truth can fend for itself against falsehood:
Let her and Falshood grapple; who ever knew Truth put to the wors, in a free and open encounter. (Milton Reading Room: Darthmouth)
My question: Is Milton correct? Can truth fend for itself? Or can falsehood sometimes defeat truth?
