Pastel Journalism

Meaning: Reporting on softer fields like art, music, movies & literature.
Pronunciation: Self explanatory.
Usage: The New Yorker is a great advertisement for pastel journalism.
Root: Yellow Journalism is hard hitting & unscrupulous. Pastel journalism is at the opposite end of the spectrum. It's based on facts. Focuses on un-sensational topics. And doesn't try to run down anyone, without basis.
