Top Definition
This term is a criticism of modern journalism. It references to "yellow journalism" - a term used for the sensationalistic journalism during the turn of the 20th century. The green refers to money and the greed of the industry and/or the pro-environmental bias.
Often as sensationalistic as its yellow predecessor, green journalism tends to appeal to our emotions, exploit our fears, and pander to our vanity. It places a political agenda in front of the quest for journalistic truth and in its most demagogic forms tolerates no criticism, branding all who question it as enemies of the people.
