bang-bang
 n.— «One reason that this particular conflict attracts so much unqualified attention is because it is incredibly easy to cover while at the same time providing the necessary drama and “bang-bang” (newsroom slang for combat footage) that for reasons left better explained by a sociologist, seem to increase viewer ratings and heighten overall interest.» —“Jews are news” by Michael Ross National Post (Don Mills, Ontario, Canada) Dec. 29, 2008.
