Factjacked is a word to cover the mechanical nature of human thinking, especially as it applies to those who identify themselves as   -- thinkers. You see factjacking in every headline.  It is the quality of a finished thought. Capital letter to ending period of punctuation. What it signals is that the case is closed, when the case can never be closed, regardless of the fact that was in question.  The raw edge of newness, of openness, of vacant possibility, of the connections binding and building, is lost with the factjacked fact. It is a quality of thought itself, not any particular fact thought. Factjacking refers to the cerebral achievements which can be confidently and clearly presented to multitudes.

A finished fact is a useless, and irrelevant fact.  Of course, that is, some of the time.....
