Comes from the combination of the words politics and tabloid. Used to describe political magazines, websites, pundit shows (Bill O'Reilly, Keith Olbermann) that tend to base things on opinions and not back them up with facts or reliable source material. Pronounced poli-tabloid.
Sarah was winning the argument until we found out she was just pulling stuff out of the politabloids again.
