I Have Just "Coined" A New "Term"

As part of my on-going campaign to improve the English language one neologism at a time, I hereby am proud to introduce a new and use-ful word into the popular lexicon:


The word refers to the increasing convergence of entertainment and information on the television and radio and newsreel mediums. Nowadays, unless Walter Cronkite removes his eye-glasses live on national television, we have no way of knowing if we're being presented hard-earned news or entertaining fluffery!

Now, we can use my new word -- Info-tainment -- to refer to this entertainmental/informational convergence as a singular entity.

This invention will no doubt garner me international fame and fortune and be the recipient of many lexicon awards.
