Insufficient morsels of news meted out by journalists of TV and radio. Often simply a headline and one paragraph's worth word-count, so that they can pile on as many little anecdotes as possible between traffic reports, witty banter, and advertisements, and repeat them every half hour for the short-attention span crowd.
Watching CNN Headline News is pretty much just getting newscandy.
