(名詞) 對於一個人的行為如預期般地壞所表現的幸災樂禍以及對該行為的憤慨。這個字是由 gloat (幸災樂禍) + outrage (憤慨) 拼綴而成。這是越來越多美國人和新聞媒體現在對總統川普種種瘋狂行徑所抱持的心態和情緒反應。
It’s time to stop being outraged. It isn’t even really outrage—it’s gloatrage, when you’re secretly thrilled that he’s proving himself to be just as bad as you thought.
—Gideon Lichfield, “It’s time to start ignoring the president of the United States,” Quartz, July 1,
An unfortunate consequence of the mainstream media’s outrage (or ‘gloatrage’) is that political bias has begun to leak from the opinion pages into the news coverage, giving detractors further reason to eschew what have been traditionally high-quality news outlets such as the Washington Post and the New York Times.
