A term used by arrogant twats to elicit an angered response from those they are referring to. It makes them feel superior to be one of the few truly "in the know".
It suggests that the peope being referred somehow have less education o a particular subject, follow only mainstream media, and are gullible. This of course is often a completely unsubstantiated claim.
