The word for this week is veracity, a noun meaning "truth." Here are some examples of how this word is used:
"When the witness was cross-examined, serious doubts arose about the veracity of her testimony."
"I know I have my faults, but you can count on my veracity when you need an honest opinion."
"Throughout the presidential campaign, the veracity of both candidates' ads became an issue of concern."
