Appearing on "The Colbert Report", a satirical news program, Stephen Colbert
led the nation with this word that appeared at the top of the Webster 2006
word list AND the American Dialect Society's list. The word refers to truth
attained from a gut instinct as opposed to fact or proven evidence through
intellectual observation or logic. According to Colbert in interviews, the
term highlights the United States' selfish opinion on truth not only being
something that people 'feel' is correct, but that it is something that can
only be correct because 'they' are the ones feeling its merit. In a sense,
it pokes fun at the public's disregard for empirical fact in various aspects
of life. Since the show's debut, Colbert has also coined the term
“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
