    • When does a piece of data go from being a factoid to being a fact?
    • I don't know whether this item is a fact, or a factoid.
    • There is another way to weigh this trend, however: maybe readers and viewers are not so much growing insular as searching for meaning in a vast universe of fact and factoid, and embracing a political bent is one way of organizing it.
    • I'm informed from a usually reliable source that a factoid is an empirical claim that is often repeated but is in fact false.
