(n.) - television graphics that occupy the lower area of a TV screen, originally coined by the Chyron Corporation which develops and manufactures on-screen graphics; now a commonly-used term for such graphics on TV broadcasts worldwide

(n.) -- an online activity in which one visits a website, Twitter feed, or
Facebook page for the express purpose of ridiculing -- or indulging
one's disdain for -- the author and/or the content on the site
"Okay, I'll be honest: I indulge in hate-reading from time to time, sure, ever since I
discovered the Internet in junior high. It's something I usually do alone, late at night, when I'm
procrastinating or drunk or bored."
