adj. Having only the slimmest connection to facts and bearing only the slightest resemblance to reality.

Real citation: "Television continues to thrive. One fifteen-minute nightly newscast, barely visible through the smoky haze of its cigarette company benefactor, has evolved into a multi-channel, twenty-four hour a day infotastic clusterfuck of factish-like material."
(Jon Stewart, America(The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction, page 151, 2004)

Made-up citation: "My resume may only be semi-factish-like, but it gives me a happy--and my mother put it on the refrigerator."
