hotel journalism
 n.— «The jacket tout compares “Where is Nicaragua?” to Joan Didion’s ” Salvador,” a condescending and superficial bit of hotel journalism published a few years ago. That is unfortunate. Didion’s slim volume was full of holes you could drive a tank through, and was shot through with faulty political and cultural judgments about El Salvador and Central America based on a three-week visit in 1981.» —“What’s really happening in Nicaragua: A film maker’s view” by T.E. Bell Houston Chronicle (Texas) June 14, 1987. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
