“Truthiness”, as defined by Detmer, involves believing in something so strongly that you believe it to be correct, or truthy, even if it is only based on wishful thinking. Stephen Colbert nicely sums it up, fondly referring to truthiness as our “gut feel”; if we feel it in our gut, it must be correct, because there are more nerve endings in our gut than in our brain. In our current day and age, “truthiness” tints most of our media exposure. It is extremely relevant to a greater extent now that people have become complacent with persuasion-based propaganda aimed towards them.
