Truthiness refers to the quality by which a person knows something in their gut, instinctively, without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts. Stephen Colbert shared this ground-breaking new word during the first episode (October 17, 2005) of his top-rated cable-TV news program, The Colbert Report, as the subject of a segment called The WØRD.
