The over-sensationalizing and dramatizing of tragic events (such as the deaths of former statsmen or cowboy actors), often to a titillating degree, especially when employed in journalistic practice.
1) While the destruction of the World Trade Center was tragic, the media’s spin on it has descended into sheer mournography.
2) After Reagan died, the ensuing mournography was so obscene that I almost wished he were still alive.
