The term '''Post-Truth''' was added to the Oxford English dictionary in 2016. The entry is as follows:
Relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief:
: ''"in this era of post-truth politics, it's easy to cherry-pick data and come to whatever conclusion you desire"''
