`Chatterati’ is a combination of `chatter’ and `literati’. The word `literati’, as you probably know, refers to the educated people who take a great interest in literature. `Chatterati’ is a term used by journalists to refer to people (columnists, talk show hosts, self-proclaimed pundits, etc) who love letting the world know what their opinion on something is — it doesn’t really matter to these people whether or not they know anything about the subject being discussed! Needless to say, the word is used to show disapproval.
