This is when the media reports blatantly incorrect facts about a creative work that any fan (or casual observer, or anyone with access to TheOtherWiki, etc.) would know to be wrong. It seems like some people just can't be bothered to do any fact-checking. Let's face it -- sometimes, it's not easy to do. But what about the news? Newspapers, a NewsBroadcast, national news, etc.? It is in their job description to do at least ''some'' research, to make sure they aren't stating factual untruths.

[[caption-width-right:348:For starters, the picture shows a girl. Her [[IAmNotShazam name]] is [[GenderBlenderName Ed]].[[note]]The main character of the show, Spike, is a man with dark green hair impossible to mistake for her. "Cowboy" is slang for "bounty hunter," the occupation of the main cast of characters. "Bebop" is the name of the spaceship that they use. In both cases, it's "Bebop", not "[[WeWillUseWikiWordsInTheFuture BeBop]]".[[/note]]]]

This rule apparently doesn't apply much to works of fiction. Maybe the news media doesn't seem to care as much about the show in question as about whatever effect it had. But that's no reason to make an error that could have been avoided by looking into the material a bit, especially if said error involves serious accusations like blaming a child's death on imitating something they saw on TV. This may result from the media [[NeverTrustATrailer trusting a trailer]], though it doesn't help if the title has [[WordSaladTitle little or no meaning]]. Often results in examples either factually incorrect (from minor to grossly wrong like the trope namer) or taking some "facts" from TheThemeParkVersion of a larger entity, which to some is much worse than just not doing the research.
