I still think "post-factual" has a better ring.

After much discussion, debate, and research, the Oxford Dictionaries 
Word of the Year 2016 is:

post-truth

an adjective defined as 'relating to or denoting circumstances in 
which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion 
than appeals to emotion and personal belief'.
