outrage porn

Memes, news articles, TV segments, email forwards, or other forms of media that are designed to invoke outrage. This is especially true for political-related topics. Viewers of outrage porn often become addicted and spend many hours per day trying to seek new outrage highs. For example, "The Daily Kos had some good outrage porn today. Apparently some conservative said something stupid."
