That's true. Being a 'fact' is a matter of degree and in practice all 'facts' are theory
laden. Even a fact like, "I am experiencing seeing a chair." assumes you are sane enough
to correctly introspect and formulate your experience in that sentence. But that said,
some things are much more fact-like than others and have much less theory attached than
others. In terms science I just use 'fact' to mean those direct observations that almost
everyone can agree on, aka 'data'.
