What is truthiness?!

Here is an excellent primer from epiScope on

How to read the UK Press.

A magnificent dissection of what passes for journalism these days!

Amongst other things, it has introduced me to a new word:

truthiness noun
the quality of stating facts that you believe or want to be true, rather than stating facts that are known to be true.

I will be using it, and its associated adjective truthy at every possible opportunity!

Thanks to Dylan for bringing this to my attention in her digest of anglicana.
