    Sabbelshow

    Sources
    "...die Darstellung in den Sabbelshows im Fernsehen" - Helmut Schmidt is talking about the way the media portrays left and right extremism.

    Hey gang,
    so I assume he's being derogatory about talk shows here, but what does "sabbeln" actually mean? And do we have an equivalent term?
    Thanks

    Für "sabbeln" könnte man (je nach Zusammenhang) auch labern oder schwafeln sagen, da stehen auch einige Übersetzungsvorschläge.

    sabbeln means to talk drivel - Gelaber, Gefasel

    You don't get "drivel shows", though, that wouldn't work.

    Sabbelshow : perhaps: so-called talk show

    ... the representation of... in the so-called talk shows on TV

    Don't know if that would work. Any better ideas?

    "sabbeln" is a northern German dialect word meaning labern oder schwafeln (cf #1).

    Thanks very much everyone, all really useful comments - any other ideas on a derogatory name for a talk/chat show other than 'so-called' though?
    Thanks again :)
