* ExecutiveMeddling - Normally, when this trope is mentioned on the wiki (As it is in real life), it is almost ''always'' used in a negative context. However, [[TropesAreTools there have been just as many instances where executive meddling didn't actually harm the work or even made it better]] - they rarely if ever get mentioned, since nobody complains if the system works.

* ''WebVideo/TheHappyVideoGameNerd'': Normally averted, but his reviews of ''VideoGame/StarTropics 2'' and ''VideoGame/MegaMan10'' had this in spades. Also in the second half of his ''Videogame/EternalDarkness'' review and even more so in the second review.

** This has started to die down in 2015, with [=SpongeBob=] [=SquarePants=] having Stephen Hillenburg back on board (as well as the news that he's returning to the show itself), featuring humor on par with that of the first 3 seasons and de-flanderizing the characters, WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks being more down to earth, having more wholesome humor, and not rehashing the same "bromance" theme of other Nicktoons and announcements involving reboots of some of their old series (which includes recruiting Craig Bartlett to finally produce something classic Nick fans have been wanting for over a decade: Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie). 2016 only improvec things further, with them picking up the dub to WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug, the near-unanimous praise of WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse, improving the humor and storytelling of Sanjay and Craig and shelving Breadwinners to Nicktoons without renewing it for a third season.

And in 2017, Nickelodeon announced that ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' is getting a TV movie, and released well-received shows like ''Series/HunterStreet'', ''Series/{{Ride}}'', and ''WesternAnimation/BunsenIsABeast''.
* It seems that as for 2017, Creator/CartoonNetwork is going to this direction, mainly because of poorly-received [[ContinuityReboot reboots]] (''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'', ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' and ''WesternAnimation/Ben102016'' being the most infamous examples) and its tendency to [[AdoredByTheNetwork adore]] certain shows and [[ScrewedByTheNetwork screw]] others, such as giving ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' the boot and announcing the date of the ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' finale as 2018.

* ''{{Film/Argo}}'': Throughout the movie, and particularly in the intro, Argo describes the deposed Shah of Iran as The Caligula — a cruel, decadent, despotic puppet of the United States who forced foreign trends on his people all while also living in uncaring luxury as the country went down the toilet. While these facts were individually accurate, the film neglects to present the positive aspects of the Shah's rule that were also there, such as religious tolerance, giving land to peasants and equal rights for women. Though it made sense in the context of showing why most of the Iranians had becoe so angry throughout the film, it isn't quite an accurate summary of his reign.

* An entire school of philosophy, Pessimism, insists that we live in the worst of all possible worlds. Arthur Schopenhauer is a good exemplar: he argued that the world is a kind of penal colony, in which misery and suffering greatly outweighs happiness.

Some (like him) therefore argue it's better to have never been born (anti-natalism).



* Recent pedophilia-and-coverup scandals have given the Catholic church a very bad rap, with Catholic priests these days seem to be constantly portrayed as having a fondness for the altar boys. One of the most tragic aspects of the whole scandal (apart from the actual child molesting, of course) is that so many good people—people who would have been sickened to know what was happening in the institution—poured a lifetime of good and honorable work into an institution which, through the [[VocalMinority grotesque acts of a few and those who covered up for them]], has been reduced to a sick joke.
* The Protestant Church in the USA (be it Baptist, Lutheran, Calvinist, Methodist,...) also gets a lot of negative attention in the media, especially since many of their most fundamentalist and controversial preachers like Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Jimmy Swaggart, Ted Haggard, Jim Bakker, Oral Roberts, Fred Phelps, Peter Popoff... cause enormous damage to the reputation of American televangelists both in the US and abroad. To the public it may often appear that virtually all of them are OnlyInItForTheMoney, homophobes who are gay themselves, corrupt, money laundering and will use the most far-fetched tactics to brainwash gullible followers into handing over all their cash and being hateful towards atheists, gays, single mothers, people of other faith,...

** Creator/{{Konami}} gets this a lot, particularly [[AmericansHateTingle in the West]] where they've received ''massive'' MemeticLoser status. It would be easier to count how many people in the West still appreciate what they produce today. Since their shifting away from console games, Western fans tend to lash out at anything bad or controversial they do (their scruffs with Creator/HideoKojima, their [[ExecutiveMeddling meddling]] with ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', and the unfortunately-timed announcements of a fanservice-laden ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania}}'' pachinko game and a ''Metal Gear'' pachinko game with an infamous BaitAndSwitch trailer being two of the most major examples) and cite those things as examples of "Konami doesn't make games anymore, they're a gambling and ''mobage'' company now!", in spite of Konami continuing to produce well-received arcade games (just ask any fan of current arcade {{Rhythm Game}}s). When ''[[VideoGame/{{Bomberman}} Bombergirl]]'', an actual arcade game and not a pachinko or other gambling-related spinoff, was unveiled at JAEPO 2017, it was singled out as "more proof that Konami only ever does bad things now" while the rest of the arcade games Konami showed at that event were larely ignored by Western fans. Notably, ''Bombergirl'' and Konami pachinko games are [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]], but it doesn't stop Western fans from complaining about games that they don't play.
