* In early 2017, an alleged news story about Creator/WhoopiGoldberg insulting a Navy SEAL widow was being shared online by various conservatives on social media as though it were truth. Apparently, the story spread so fast that this information ended up being caught by fact-checking websites Snopes and Politifact, both of whom deemed it to be bogus. Politifact ultimately caught up with the writer of this story and revealed him to be Jason [=McDaniel=], an American nutritionist living in Costa Rica. [=McDaniel=] created a satirical website called [=UndergroundNewsNet=] to share parody news stories (with conveniently-placed disclaimers that they were fiction) about left-wing politicians and pundits and shared them on a Trump-themed Facebook page to see if people would actually buy the stories. A lot of them did.

** A [[http://articles.nydailynews.com/2011-10-16/local/30303666_1_costumes-dynamic-duo-proton-pack NY Daily News]] article put the trolls as the main characters when describing ''Homestuck''. While minor, long-time fans of the series will skip approx 6.12 beats after reading it.

* The [=YouTube=] video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZS0icVCB80 Top 10 DEADLIEST Roller Coasters YOU WONT BELIEVE EXIST!]] has as its thumbnail a "coaster" which ''doesn't'' and indeed ''cannot'' exist (a common and often deplored [=YouTube=] practice called "click bait"). Also the coasters depicted are not in any way "deadly" (if they were they wouldn't be allowed), the title is a reference to the prejudices of the video compiler; and one of them isn't even a coaster (it's a slingshot). The comments section is full of people claiming (with much emotion and name-calling) that the coaster in the thumbnail both can/does exist and that it cannot exist -- and both sides cite Newton's First Law Of Motion as "proof" of their "case", showing that the ones in the first camp (if not both camps) are unaware of what that Law actually states, and possibly also of coaster physics, particularly the speed at which a coaster train needs to be going in order to make it through a loop. At such a speed, in the absence of a constraining track, whit is supposed to prevent the train continuing to travel in the direction it was going when it left the track?

** In his Admirable Animations review of [[Manga/GashBell A Kind Mamodo, Kolulu]] he mentioned it takes place before Sherry and Brago, in actuality the episode is 3 or 4 episodes after their debut appearance.

* One [[Franchise/TheBeatles Beatles]] "facts" site claims on the page about the "Live at the Star-Club, Hamburg" bootleg album that the suit preventing further sales of the album was settled under the "Copyright Act 1998" -- despite the fact that the settlement was ''in'' 1998, and British Acts of Parliament don't become law until 1 January of the year after the year in which they are enacted. (Plus the fact that five minutes with any search engine confirms that there is no "Copyright Act 1998".) Clearly this is a common kind of typo, that of repeating the wrong character (e.g. typing "feel" instead of "fell"), and the Act under which the case was settled was (to give it its full name) the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988; but the site owner refuses to admit that he made a mistake, much less correct it.

* 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.
