[Syntax: *(un)shocker*]. Headline or news report qualifier most commonly used in topics, although this invariably means that the aforementioned report is untrue. True news reports are nearly always suffixed with *unshocker*, if that's a word. The popularity of shockers gave birth to the Automatic Shocker Generator, which produces random headlines which aren't true, no matter how plausible they may seem.
