* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'''s EncyclopediaExposita includes [[http://www.sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=196 a language tree]] that has gone viral. However, proper context is rarely given, with the most frequent mistake being claiming that it shows how ''all'' languages are related. In reality, it's technically a FictionalDocument for an AfterTheEnd story in which the survivors of the Nordics have lost contact with any other part of the world for the better part of a century. This has resulted in the tree integrating part of the DeliberateValuesDissonance via showing only the two language families that include at least a Nordic one(namely the Indo-European and Uralic families) and not including languages from those families with too few speakers. The story also has a HitSoHardTheCalendarFeltIt element to it, resulting in the year 0 mentioned in the document actually being [[NextSundayAD an unspecified year in the 21st century]] and ''not'' year 0 A.D., which it can be very easily mistaken for by someone looking at the tree while unfamiliar with the comic.

However, proper context is rarely given, with the most frequent mistake being claiming that it shows how ''all'' languages are related. In reality, the purpose for which it was created results in it showing only two language families (namely the Indo-European and Uralic ones) and not including languages from those families with too few speakers. Even when the illustration is mentioned to have been made for a webcomic, it's rarely specified that it's an AfterTheEnd story subject to HitSoHardTheCalendarFeltIt, which means that the year 0 mentioned on the image is ''not'' year 0 A.D., which it can quite easily get mistaken for. It's also set in a world where the Nordic countries may very well house what's left of humanity, which means that in-universe documents tend to be centered around them.

** An article on Japanese versions of Western characters claimed that Luke chopped Vader's head off. Which he did. In the cave on Dagobah where, if you recall the scene from the movie, he chopped Vader's head off. It also claimed that ''{{Hellsing}}'' using the name Alucard was a clumsy way to avoid copyright issues over using Dracula, despite the fact that 1. Dracula is in the public domain and 2. in ''Hellsing'' Alucard is Dracula, which is explicitly confirmed when he reveals his true form and how he came to serve the Hellsing organization.

** In his [[http://vimeo.com/87530500 "Top 11 Worst Episodes Reviewed"]] video, he mentions that Mr. Krabs has fired Squidward and SpongeBob before, in "Can You Spare a Dime" and "Welcome to the Chum Bucket," respectively. However, neither scenario happened; Squidward quit after being accused of stealing by Krabs (though it was likely that Krabs would fire him anyway), and SpongeBob was forced to work at the Chum Bucket after Krabs bet SB's contract and lost it to Plankton (though [=Spongebob=] was fired before in episodes such as Karate Choppers and Squid on Strike).

** Also on ''Hello Internet'', WebVideo/CGPGrey says that in his experience, if you do even a trivial amount of research into almost ''any'' news story, it will turn out to have this problem. Based on this and his knowledge of how news production works, his argument is that the news in general inevitably suffers from this problem across the board, and that there's usually no point in consuming it at all because it's just too unreliable and inaccurate.

* While ''WebOriginal/DisRapsForHire'' isn't the kind of series to feature accurate facts ,the opening lines of one episode has a TakeThat to the film ''Film/{{Cyberbully}}'', with said lines saying "This cyberbully is worse than a Creator/MileyCyrus movie". Which is incorrect since the lead actress is Miley Cyrus's co-star on ''Series/HannahMontana'', Creator/EmilyOsment.

* Happened to the WebVideo/{{Numberphile}} video [[https://youtu.be/wBU9N35ZHIw "The Scientific Way to Cut a Cake"]] after it went viral (pointed out in ''Podcast/HelloInternet'' episode 15):
-->"It's ABC News, and they're talking about your video. And they start it by saying, 'A team of mathematicians and scientists at Numberphile have been working on the solution for how to cut a cake.' Now, what I love about this, is ''every part of that sentence is wrong''. ''Nothing'' is correct! 'A team of mathematicians and scientists'? No. First of all, there's one guy in the video [who's not a mathematician or scientist]. 'At Numberphile' Numberphile, at least as of now, is not some kind of great mathematical scientific institution. It's a YouTube channel. And then, 'have discovered' this is, what, it's a hundred years old?"
** Later in the episode, another instance is mentioned: "They [[=MailOnline=]] said the article was all about Alex Bellos, 'who calls himself Numberphile on YouTube.'"

* The videos made by wikia for the WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} wiki contain several factual errors. One pretty glarring example is in their video for Lie Ren. Not only do they pronounce his name wrong, but they also claim he's voiced by "WebAnimation/RWBYChibi voice actor Creator/MontyOum" who died over a year before WebAnimation/RWBYChibi first aired and has since been replaced by his brother Neath as Ren's voice actor.
