An act of abuse; despoliation; or violation: carried out by an editor on a journalist. The newsrape usually takes the form of an excessive but pointless workload that the journalist has almost no time to complete. The story/stories will then inevitably be almost completely rewritten or scrapped altogether in the subbing process.

Synonym in broadcast news: digital penetration
I have way too many straps, ulays and teases to write - why am I always getting newsraped?
