* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Mikkel states that one can act under two assumptions at once concerning [[spoiler:Tuuri's troll bite. Assuming that it infected her with a disease that will ultimately either kill her or turn her into a troll will distract everyone from doing their work correctly, so they need to assume she is not infected until proven otherwise. However, they have another non-immune among them and the disease is already contagious while it's incubating. It results in an overall attitude of simultaneously acting as if Tuuri is going to be fine and taking precautions to avoid any situation in which she may infect Reynir.]]

* Michael Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury", which paints the Trump presidency in a very negative light (Among other things, it claims that Trump never wanted to win, and his family was shocked when he actually won) [[CaptainObvious proved to be]] [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement quite controversial]]. While the book doesn't contain these, the White house's reaction has been accused of this. Not only have they claimed that everything in it is blatantly false and/or made up, but have also threatened to sue the writer for "revealing confidental information".

* in Life of Pi by Yann Martel, pi claimed to be a Christian, Muslim and Hindu, but at least 2 of these religion says the others are false(I don't know much on Hindus Mythology if you know more about the Hindu Religion please fix this edit)

* George Orwell's ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'' is the TropeNamer. The party requires that all citizens believe everything that the party says, even when they know for a fact that it is not true. Ingrained in this concept is also the idea that all we can say of reality is in our minds and therefore [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve belief determines reality]]. If everyone believes that something is true, then it ''is'' true. Thus, the party can literally dictate reality -- though in a sense you need Doublethink to consider it to be literal.

* A ''lot'' of [[CloudCuckooLander Dale Gribble's]] [[ConspiracyTheory conspiracy theories]] in ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' tend to run on these.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/StarTrekEnterpriseRelaunch'' novel ''Uncertain Logic'', V'Las is amused to realise one of his followers genuinely believes the Kir'Shara (Surak's lost writings) was faked by the ''Enterprise'' crew, despite the fact she was involved in falsifying the evidence of this herself. Previously, her internal monologue had been shown as a rabbit-warren of CircularReasoning, in which anything she wanted to be true ''must'' be true, because she was perfectly logical and therefore infallible.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Tywin Lannister suspects his son Tyrion is a bastard -not for any logical reason, he just despises Tyrion and desperately wishes he wasn't actually his son- but somehow this doesn't taint his memory of his late wife, who would have had to have cheated on him for this to be true. One theory for why this is comes from the books' indication the Mad King took "liberties" during the bedding ceremony, possibly indicating he was attracted to Tywin's wife and raped her later. So if Tywin believed this or at suspected it at least, that might explain both his view of Tyrion and not blaming his wife (the latter would be compassionate for that society).

** Hank has [[MyMasterRightOrWrong a lot of respect for his boss]], [[MrViceGuy Buck Strickland]], at times possibly even seeing him as a replacement father figure for [[AbusiveParents Cotton]]. He simultaneously knows about Buck's extramarital affairs and venal business practices, but goes out of his way to ignore them.
