Added DiffLines:

* The book ''ADHD Nation: Children, Doctors, Big Pharma, and the Making of an American Epidemic'' cites George and Harold from ''Literature/CaptainUnderpants'' as examples of fictional characters with ADHD, but claims that they're sixth graders when they're actually fourth graders.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''A Companion to the American Novel'', Bendixen describes criticism directed at ''Literature/UncleTomsCabin'''s "racial stereotyping of its major African American characters, especially Tom and Little Eva". [[SpoiledSweet Eva]] is not black.

** In a similar vein to the above, the running joke that "the new teacher is always evil". While this is ''mostly'' accurate, to the point that the sixth such teacher, Horace Slughorn, was a refreshing subversion, it unfairly leaves out the ''third'' "new teacher", Remus Lupin, one of the series' most prominent heroic characters. For another, Lockhart was an coward, egomaniac, fraud, and idiot but ''not'' a villain.

** The American version of the novel topped this. Somebody had very clearly gone through every page turning British English into American English spellings, and rewriting some Anglocentric incidental detail to make more sense to American readers. They were obviously ignorant of the existence of an English east coast seaport serving the ferry trade to Scandinavia and the Low Countries. A reference to Aziraphile and Crowley's Agreement is rendered nonsensical by changing the place-name '''Hull''' to '''Hell'''. Hull may not be the most pleasant place in England and its most famous son has a legendary association with Greed and Anger - but it exists, guys. It exists.

* An Australian magazine claimed that [[TheMillenniumTrilogy Stieg Larsson]] was a neo-Nazi. This is especially puzzling since the man was a democratic socialist who received death threats from far-right and racist organisations for his work against them, and depicted the Nazi characters in his first book as having kidnapped, raped, and killed dozens of women, making one wonder whether the magazine's writers had any familiarity with him whatsoever.

* The people profiled in Time Magazine's "Man-Woman of the Year" issues have always been picked by their relevancy during a given year, not to promote the best leaders. Several news websites, particularly those with a right-wing conspiracy theory bias, were shocked (or perhaps, ''pretended'' to be shocked) to see that Time "endorsed" UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler as its "Man of the Year" during the height of the Third Reich. Anyone who actually ''read'' the issue would have learned that the magazine was calling him off for being the sick bastard that he was, not to praise him. One might question what these same websites thought when they saw UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump grace Time's "Man of the Year" issue in 2016.

** As of February 2017, there are 412 ratings (including at least one 1-star rating) of the fourth Literature/CormoranStrikeNovels book on [[http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28170940-untitled GoodReads]] -- despite the fact that absolutely nothing at all is known about this book (including its title, and when or even ''if'' it will be published), making all those "ratings" so much hot air.
