The WordEdit

The Word is a regular segment in The Colbert Report.

Stephen takes a word usually inspired by a news story or a personal (in character) reaction to a news story and then talks about it. Such words as truthiness and wikiality have appeared in this manner. Of these truthiness has been featured in many magazines, newspapers and news items. It is the Editor's understanding that it has been officially accepted as a new dictionary term.
