TV show that attempts to tackle an issue, but is geared up more to entertain than to make a difference.
Originally coined by Screen Wipe's Charlie Brooker.
Did you see that issuetainment last night, where they made those fat kids do sports? They weren't trying to help them, just make them look silly on TV.

"The only solution is to find a new threat, which brings us to 'Ian Wright's Unfit Kids' (C4), a weekly 'issuetainment' programme in which the former footballer and renowned enemy of grammar forces a bunch of overweight youngsters to take part in some extracurricular PE." - Charlie Brooker, Screen Burn (9/16/2006)

Random people. People you don't know, and who seem to be there for no reason. Strangers, or barely-there acquaintances.
The ones nobody invited to the party, but who hang around anyway - no-one will ask them to leave, as no-one knows who invited them in the first place.
My Facebook friends are a mix of colleagues, school friends, and randomers I couldn't turn down in case I'd met them and forgotten about it.

"To bulk up a television news report with needless vox-pop soundbites from ill-informed members of the public." (Screen Wipe's Charlie Brooker)

To pebbledash the broadcast with the opinions of plebs.
The breakfast news is heavily plebbledashed. They seem to care more about the opinions of people texting in than they do about standards of reporting.
