** A [[http://virl.bibliocommons.com/item/show/651514043_fullmetal_alchemist,_profiles library]] posted a description of "Fullmetal Alchemist: Profiles" on their website. The description included lines like "fighting the evil alchemists called the Seven Deadly Sins." The homunculi were not alchemists. And the description misspells the main characters name as "Edward Alric".
* An [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/review/overman-king-gainer/dvd-complete-collection Anime News Network review]] of ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer'' criticizes the opening for being silly in a series that has a "High serious nature". King Gainer is a comedy which just happens to have been made by Yoshiyuki Tomino, who is best known for his serious anime like the Gundam franchise.

And alchemists, and are named after the SevenDeadlySins but never referred to collectively as such. Also, the description misspells the main characters character's name as "Edward Alric".

* An in-media example for ''Manga/GundamSousei'': a newspaper announcing the release of the Gundam movie features a picture of [[ActionGirl Sayla]], while captioning it as "the hero, Amuron".
* The American Family Association wrote an article on the dangers of video games and this somehow segued into [[{{Hentai}} h-games]]. This would've been fine and all....except the article misspelled it as 'hentia'. Again, wouldn't have been a problem except the article KEPT ON spelling it in that manner.

** Although this example has nothing to do with journalism, the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Potential" had Andrew say "But, I'm [[HeelFaceTurn reformed]]. I'm like Vegeta on ''Dragon Ball Z''. I used to be a pure Saiyan and now, I fight on the side of Goku." Apparently in both cases, they seem to think that "Saiyan" is a catch-all term for ''any'' evil alien warrior, but in reality, it refers to a member of a [[http://www.dragonballencyclopedia.com/wiki/Saiyan particular alien race]].
* ''Bleeding Cool'', a comic book news website, has an article called "Swap File", where they show different background items being used in two separate comics. A [[http://www.bleedingcool.com/2011/06/30/swipe-file-clamp-and-brightest-day/ recent one]] showed that a [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Clow Reed circle]] was used in one of the ''ComicBook/BrightestDay'' spin-off covers. Not so bad. The bad part is when they show clips and pictures from Cardcaptor Sakura and kept saying it was from ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle''. Readers were quick to correct them on their mistake.

* For some reason, Wiki/TheOtherWiki thinks thinks that the voice actors in ''Anime/BabyFelixAndFriends'' were [[Creator/GreyDeLisle Grey DeLisle]] and Creator/BillyWest, Creator/TaraStrong, Creator/CandiMilo, Creator/CreeSummer, Creator/KathSoucie, Creator/CoreyBurton, Creator/JeffBennett, [[Creator/MauriceLaMarche Maurice LaMarche]], Creator/RobPaulsen, Vince Corazza and Alicia Silverstone. Neither people was involved with the show at all. These errors also show up in [[http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/tv-shows/Baby-Felix-and-Friends/ Behind The Voice Actors]] just like ''WesternAnimation/TheBrothersFlub''.

* [[http://www.cracked.com/article_18655_9-beloved-characters-made-horrifying-by-japan.html This Cracked Article's author]] seems to have never seen the anime he complains about. Most glaring is ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''.where the author seems to think the Catholic Knights are the KKK (sorta understandable) and while he does recognize Alucard as the main protagonist according to the author the main villain is "a giant dog with lots of eyes commanded by a pedophile with bitching sholderpads" and a picture of alucard after releasing restraint level 1 is given.

** Speaking of ''Dragon Ball'' and pedophilia, there's the case of Lloyd de Mause and "psychohistory". In his attempt to [[SingleIssuePsychology prove that all human history has been cases of child abuse]], he used the phallic humor in ''Dragon Ball'' ("That poor dragon...", Goku's tendency to "check" to make sure people are male or female, etc.) and the underage male nudity to somehow prove that [[WindmillCrusader all Japanese mothers masturbate their sons]]. Okay, [[SarcasmMode that's all fine]], but because of Goku's NobleSavage origins, he referred to Goku as Tarzan throughout!

* Overlapping with Western Animation, it's generally assumed that if a show ''looks'' [[{{Animesque}} like an anime]], it must be one. One could probably forgive cases like ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' or ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', but ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'', which has a lot of satire regarding ''America'' and is based on an ''American newspaper comic''... Not so much. [[AccidentallyCorrectWriting Then again, all animation is called anime in Japan, so...]]

* A ''New York Times'' article once featured comedic redesigns of WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse done by [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Butch]] [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Hartman]], one of which was a vaguely {{Animesque}} take. The paper claimed that particular design was inspired by ''Dragon Ball Z'', which they referred to as a popular children's card game. There ''was'' a ''DBZ'' card game at one point, but the writer seemed to be unaware that it was spun-off from the massively popular TV show and manga.

* A September 11, 2008 MSNBC [[http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26639577/ report on "sexy anime going mainstream"]]. It said "[[{{Lolicon}} Lolicom]]" is a combination of "Lolita" and "comic". And that "{{Otaku}}" is a word meaning "Techno-geek".
