Kind of like the number of people who watched the Super Bowl.  In that context, true fact makes sense (also “cold hard fact”).  While it should be redundant, it emphasizes that the data being referenced is an actual fact and not an assumed fact.

IMO a fact is true. There are no false facts.
That being said, a fact is true within its domain space.
'Atoms are indivisible' was a fact until it wasn't.
That doesn't make it a false fact, just a false statement.
At the time of a fact's creation/utterance/whatever it's true, otherwise 
it's not a fact.
