Winalot journalism
 n.Note: Winalot is a brand of dog food sold in the United Kingdom. The reference suggests journalists are treated as pets, given tidbits and handouts as long as they are cooperative. «For years any big “exclusive” stories about Rangers generally had Murray’s hand behind them. The sceptics in my business—the precious few, I might add—refer to it as “Winalot journalism,” likening it to pet dogs being plied with biscuits and pats on the head for good behaviour.» —“What’s real reason to rebuild Ibrox?” by Graham Spiers Times (London, United Kingdom) Jan. 14, 2008.
