clip job
 n.— «Horwitt writes that he spent five years interviewing Feingold, his family and friends. He also read a lot of local and national newspapers, judging by the footnotes. But he drew on few other sources, and the result is something of a hybrid—part oral biography and part “clip job,” as it’s known in journalism—a new story based primarily on old clippings.» —“‘Feingold’ by Sanford D. Horwitt” by Scott Martelle Los Angeles Times July 23, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
