Top definition
A non-verifiable, counterfeit factoid. A facturd is created, often impromptu, from bits and pieces of otherwise real information, to support the creator's opinions.
Unlike a factoid, a facturd is essentially misinformation, pulled out of the air, sometimes related to something the speaker or writer has read or heard, and usually to support an otherwise unsupportable stance.
A facturd presenter often speaks or writes with strong conviction, believing in it's truthfulness and accuracy.
"Of COURSE the French would lose in a war against England! If you simply did a little reading, you'd know that they have surrendered in every single war they've ever fought!"

"Where did you find THAT ridiculous little facturd?"
