Goto next slide#6: Infotainment

This one began life as a dismissive term for "a TV program that presents information (as news) in a manner intended to be entertaining."

In other words: "fluff that real journalists don't make."

More recently, however, it's been seen with an additional, neutral meaning: something (such as one of those screens in the back of an airplane seat) that offers a selection of information or entertainment programming.
