(adverb, from mediabation, root to mediabate)
Of, or relating to, the media's tendency to report the same damn thing over and over again when a story is breaking but there is nothing truly new to report. Generally used to suggest that the situation has shifted from reporting the news to masturbation of same.
Example: "The constant barrage of non-information regarding Caylee Anthony has become mediabatory."
Special thanks to Chris Bridges who coined the term at my insistence, as I was never particularly fond of "Newswanking."
