Word of the day: filibuster

Here's a mental exercise for you in the studio audience and the viewers at home:

Go to Google News and search on the name 'Bolton' (click here if you wish) As of this writing, there are a number of stories dated within the last 17 hours. Fine.

Now, Google News 'Bolton filibuster': just 4 stories since 17-Jun.

Please, dear reader, what is the definition of filibuster, and why are the media apparently afraid of it?
