To the Hoom:

Cherry Angostura overreacts to insignificance (Richard Roeper) in "That's Rich!" [December 21], just as that ambitious columnist overreacts to others' insignificance (as "celebrities") in his key tapping and on-camera lip movements, and just as I overreact to Cherry's put-down of Roeper with this insignificant sign of my egotism, a letter to the editor.

This minor sequence exemplifies the word churning that journalism usually is. There must be a term for those who gravitate to and work with fluff. What could it be?
