Bloviation 

My word for the day is 'bloviation' after reading it in 'Frank Rich: The White House Stages Its 'Daily Show'' (The New York Times, 20 February 2005). Actually, if you're looking for it, 'bloviation' appears on page 2 and if you're interested in journalism there are better reasons to read it.

Incidentally, the piece referred to 'newsmen' - a word that thankfully isn't used here in Australia or I'd be tearing my hair out every time I read or heard it. Instead, I'm wishing my net connection was faster so that I could view some of 'The Daily Show' clips.
