* ''WebVideo/ExtraCredits'': They criticised ''VideoGame/{{Hatred}}'' as having no value - which is actually rather impressive, seeing as the game wasn't even out yet and there was probably no way for them to have actually played it.

* [[https://medium.com/think-tube/my-little-pony-friendship-is-marxism-d8dcaac974eb#.bs7mcvjvf This satirical article]] is largely based around this trope. It is about an in-story author named Cliven Irving who claims that the tv show "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" is a tool by the "Six Pointer Commission" [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial which is not at all an antisemitic slur]] to promote "Cultural Marxism" and LGBT lifestyle. He makes several blatant errors, such as claiming there aren't any male characters in the show ([[InsaneTrollLogic as proof that the show promotes lesbianism]]) and also that one of the characters is named "Molestia" (which he fails to realize is a fan nickname). It also gets lampshaded when he proclaims that "And I know them to be named that based on contacts who see people who watch this filth, for I will not let my purity be polluted".

* A pretty audacious example appears in ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun''. Several gags imply Maeno, [[SequentialArtist Nozaki]]'s former supervising editor, nearly never reads Nozaki's scripts!

* In ''Theatre/DreamGirl'', Clark Redfield explains that he doesn't always read the books he reviews for newspapers, because he still gets to earn the "minimum wage for a maximum working week" guaranteed by his union contract and doesn't want to spend unnecessary time taxing his brain and his eyesight reading through thousands of pages of European history.

* In the sequel to ''KingdomHeartsTheShortAndHonestVersion'', the author takes a huge dump on Avatar. When asked if he's seen Avatar, he falls silent.

* ''Literature/LordPeterWimsey'': Harriet attends a literary party, where a gang of authors take turns theorising why some thoroughly arty and undeserving novel has been awarded a reviewer's prize - because of advertising deals, or political loyalties, or familial connections, or other underhand reasons. Naturally, none of them have actually read the book, or have the faintest idea what it's even about.

* In ''{{Series/Newhart}}'', the townspeople think Dick's do-it-yourself books helped a prison break. They get ready to do some BookBurning, but then Joanna convinces them to actually read his books. They see the books couldn't have told the prisoners how to escape, but the books are boring, so they almost burn the books for that reason. So this was a ZigZaggedTrope.

* The gaming magazine [=GameBro=] in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' gives a so-so review to the highly anticipated Sburb. It later turns out that the reviewer hasn't even touched it.

** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] with her ''{{Jem}}'' review, which she has admitted was done only because she felt pressured by it's 'girly nostalgia', despite the fact she was not a fan nor ever watched the show as a kid.

* ''WebVideo/FeministFrequency'': She has stated in a video she doesn't like video games and had to research them. In her deleted (but reuploaded by other users with the original re-uploaded by NastyOpinons) video of ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' and her promotion, she made it perfectly clear she had never once played the game or even put any research into the character by claiming Bayonetta was a single mother without mentioning anything else.

* ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' features a StrawFan as an ArcVillain, and at one point you have to get past the door via a true/false quiz. One "question" in that quiz fits this trope, and is shown in the page image.
