** One of the History Lesson posts regarding the "Judgement Day" PPV mistakenly listed the Torrie Wilson vs Dawn Marie match from the 2004 show as being a grudge match for the stepmother storyline. That storyline's blow-off match happened at the 2003 Royal Rumble. Their match at Judgement Day 2004 was actually one where Torrie's career was on the line.

** Anita complained about a mission in ''VideoGame/WatchDogs'' where the player is investigating a sex trafficking ring. Specifically she used it as an example of women being used as titillation. This is ignoring the fact that the mission is to ''stop'' the ring, and save the girls. The player is notably ''not'' rewarded with sex for this, and the game emphasises how scary and dehumanising it is for the girls. It was [[http://shetterly.blogspot.ie/2015/02/liana-kerzners-smart-feminist-critique.html pointed out]] that this scene was meant as NightmareFuel, calling Anita out for the UnfortunateImplications of assuming gamers were automatically turned on by female abuse.

* This article in on Men's Journal's website described the city of Saint Paul, Minnesota as "A small townn in the middle of a metro area of 2,000,00" Small problem. As of the writing of the article on MJ.com, the city of Saint Paul had a population of nearly 300,000. Or about the size of Cincinnati, Saint Louis, or Pittsburgh. And the Twin Cities metro itself has a population of 3.5 million people as of the writing of the article.

* Women's wrestling website ''Diva Dirt'':
** Writer Jack is prone to research mistakes, often getting the names of moves wrong (one infamous instance was where he thought a clear TKO was "some kind of botched back body drop"). This is especially glaring, as he replaced writer Bobby - who was famed for having very well-researched write-ups.
** Erin is not as bad as Jack but she frequently can't tell the difference between a headscissors, hurricanrana and Frankensteiner. She notably will call any hurricanrana variant a Frankensteiner - when the latter is only ever done from the top rope. She also has been known to call the Victory Roll a "reverse Frankensteiner."



** Listing Clementine from ''Film/EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind'' as a straight example of a ManicPixieDreamGirl, even though she is a character who was an outright subversion of this trope who actually says to her romantic foil: "I'm not a concept. Too many guys think I'm a concept or I complete them or I'm going to make them alive, but I'm just a fucked up girl who is looking for my own peace of mind. Don't assign me yours."

Addtionally she acknowledges Summer from ''Film/FiveHundredDaysOfSummer'' when examining the trope - but fails to mention that the film deconstructs said relationship.



** She said that the ''{{VideoGame/Hitman}}'' games has a level in which you go through a strip club solely so the player can go through the dressing rooms and use the women there as eye-candy, and also that the game encourages the player to kill the women and disrespect their remains. The ''Hitman'' games are called that because you're a professional assassin, and you're therefore working to kill specific targets ''and nobody else''. The games not only discourage, but actively punish the player for disturbing, much less killing, anyone besides the specific mark. The target in this case was the strip club's owner, and there are no good paths through the level that take you through the dressing rooms. Because she showed footage of this taking place, it's even possible she actively sought out footage of players killing the girls or even recorded it herself.

Because she showed footage of this taking place, it's even possible she actively sought out footage of players killing the girls or even recorded it herself. Which makes it doubly odd that she didn't pick up on the fact that the game clearly penalises the player for doing it.
** She lists Betty from ''{{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}}'' as a StrawFeminist - because she's a LadEtte who has the female symbol on her sweater. Not once in the cartoon does Betty display a StrawFeminist or DoesNotLikeMen attitude. Plenty of episodes of ''Rugrats'' and even more of the spin-off ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' show that Betty loves her husband very much. She's an example of MasculineGirlFeminineBoy but not a StrawFeminist in any sense of the trope.
** She criticises ''{{Series/Angel}}'' for having Cordelia suffer a MysticalPregnancy twice but fails to mention that the second one ''had'' to be put in because Charisma Carpenter became pregnant for real.
** When criticising ''Film/SuckerPunch'' she didn't seem to realise that the girls' names are not actually their real names - and they're only called as such in the fantasy worlds. We never find out the girls' real names.
** When complaining about Femme Fatale in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' she expresses disappointment at the anti-feminism message. Except the episode does the very thing she complains at it for not doing. The girls deliver AnAesop to the villain about how her method ''isn't'' real feminism.

* Invoked for humor in one online video, where an exasperated SamuelLJackson is harassed by a bunch of [[MoralGuardians overly touchy parents]], with one of them saying her son wound up in jail because he saw him act in TheShawshankRedemption, to which Jackson incredulously shouts "That was MorganFreeman!"

** At the end of his "Top 10 Worst Cartoons of the 2000's" list, the transition song is falsely credited to Music/TheyMightBeGiants, when it was actually written by Stuart Hill and performed by Garrett Freireich. Somewhat justified as the song is often falsely credited to They Might Be Giants.
