This is a video link to Colbert's description of TV news.  He manages to very funny and quite perceptive at the same time.  Truthiness is telling people what they want to hear.  People believe what they want to believe and cable news networks, in particular, satisfy that need.  They tend to reinforce the general belief systems of their target audience.  Colbert is brilliant at turning this into humor.
