A term coined by Stephen Colbert while he was slaving away under notorious taskmaster Jon Stewart as a reporter for The Daily Show. It is a close cousin of truthiness.

DefinitionEdit

Factesque refers to something that has the semblance of truth, merely because it has been repeated many times. In the absence of personal experience or first-hand observation, it becomes accepted reality.

UsageEdit

During a report on The Daily Show, Stephen explained to Jon Stewart that "It doesn't matter what I've seen, Jon. The fact is, it's been widely reported, and that makes it factesque."
