Entertainment news created by the mass media to instill fear, uncertainty and/or doubt (see: FUD), either by fabrication of false facts or twisting of words. Often accompanied by bold fonts and flashy graphics, and presented by an individual who speaks flamboyantly (example: Bill O'Reilly).
More often than not the news piece has no bearing on a person's daily life, but they must feel obligated to experience any or all of the following; anger, guilt, hatred, outrage, panic, resentment, shame.
Fox News is such a hot-bed of dramatainment. Every day there is a new story about the latest thing that will poison you, rape you, steal your money and children, make you unable to function as a grounded, logical human being or kill you in a dark alley.
