This trope 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]]". There's only a monitor in that shot, [[ComputerEqualsMonitor not the whole computer]], and the computer doesn't actually belong to the person in the image. The only correct words in this picture are "at", and "[[Creator/NamcoBandai Bandai]]".[[/note]]]]

Compare ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch. See FandomBerserkButton when it's the ''fans'' that get the names wrong. IAmNotShazam is a key trope involved. Also compare DanBrowned, the version for ''fictional'' works. See NewMediaAreEvil (though if you find yourself constantly annoyed by this kind of thing then you probably believe OldMediaAreEvil). See also AnimationAgeGhetto for when people dismiss various kinds of cartoons as childish [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids when they, in fact, are not.]] For a problem endemic to {{Anime}} and {{Manga}}, see AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles. This trope can also overlap with a ShallowParody if the parodists in question are really careless with their research. This is basically the RealLife version of CriticalResearchFailure. Compare with GretzkyHasTheBall.
