Spanish term or phrase: programas de información rosa y amarilla
The document is discussing how these sorts of programmes are on the rise in recent years. I understand "información rosa" as gossip programmes, but I have to say that I've never heard of "información amarilla" and am not sure what it is.

gossip and yellow journalism or sensationalist programmes
Explanation:
Yellow journalism, or the yellow press, is a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers. Techniques may include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, or sensationalism.

agree  Charles Davis: Would "gutter journalism" be going too far? "Yellow" isn't used very much in my experience (perhaps it is in America).

  -> Thanks Charles. It certainly originated in the US, but I think it is understood in the Uk.

agree  Robert Carter: I hadn't heard of "yellow" journalism either, I always assumed "amarillismo" was only used in Spanish. In the UK it's generally thought of as "tabloid journalism". I think "sensationalist" works well here, or even "gutter" as Charles mentioned.
