* Australia's NineNetwork decided to go to war with Creator/GordonRamsay on behalf of their reporter TracyGrimshaw. The short of it is that Gordon and Tracy do not get along and Gordon referenced her at a conference (but did not use her name) and made disparaging comments about her. Tracy retaliated by ''lying'' about what Gordon had actually said (i.e. claiming that Gordon made offensive comments about Tracy being a lesbian), and in response reporters for the network ''harassed'' Gordon in public places while he was in Australia over what he'd allegedly said. And despite the fact that they were harassing him (and that Gordon at one point had to hail security at his hotel), the Network continued to present him as a bully.

* Here's a rare case of manipulative editing portraying the subjects in a more ''positive'' light: in MorganSpurlock's documentary ''Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope'', one of the storylines follows James Darling, who plans to propose to his girlfriend Se Young at the Creator/KevinSmith panel. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMACaJSQ4bc This video]] shows how the proposal went down. In the film, James' question about Kevin Smith's fleshlight and Se Young mentioning that she's "had sex with a lot of people" were edited out, presumably to make the moment appear more romantic and less awkward. * This serves as a plot point in the romantic comedy ''TwentySevenDresses.'' Jane, as her sister Tess's maid of honor, is tasked with creating a slide show for her rehearsal dinner. Unfortunately, Tess is marrying Jane's boss, George, who Jane has secretly loved for years; to make matters worse, Tess has lied to him in an effort to impress him (including saying she loves animals and is a vegetarian and virgin). Jane writes a moving speech for the slide show...which is filled with images of Tess being mean to a cat, eating barbecue ribs, and making out with other guys. The wedding is called off--but surprisingly, [[WhatTheHellHero Jane's friends chew her out for being such a jerk and publicly humiliating Tess]], instead of being open about her feelings.

* In the Season 4 finale of ''Series/DanceMoms'', Abby and Christi break out into what would be their last heated argument over the latter's daughter Chloe. When Abby's back is turned to the camera as she walks away, her voice is heard saying that Chloe is "washed up" and Christi goes ballistic. Later, Chloe tearfully tells her mother that she "heard what Abby said" and they leave the show for good. After the episode taped, Christi said in a now-deleted series of tweets that Abby "made fun of Chloe’s appearance caused by a health issue" and that her comment would likely "be edited to protect her". Once the episode aired, fans quickly discovered that Abby's final comments to Christi were spliced together from a different episode where Abby was arguing with her main rival Cathy and that Abby's insensitive remark was made less harsh both in order to protect Abby (as Christi predicted) and to make it look like Christi flipped out over nothing. --> ''(Abby's edited comment to Christi)'' Chloe is '''finished'''! Your kid's '''washed up'''. --> ''(Abby to Cathy in a different episode)'' Cathy! You're '''finished'''! You're '''washed up''', you're old, you're nothing! ** The mothers have also stated at fan events that their reactions to Abby are often taken from harsher situations to make it look like they're flipping out over something petty. At one meet-and-greet, Kelly Hyland, who had two daughters on the show, said the following regarding manipulative editing: ---> "The bad stuff that Abby does, they take our reactions, the moms' reactions, like... her throwing a chair at Paige. Obviously, any mother is going to flip out like, 'You just threw a chair at my kid', right? But then they'll take that reaction that I gave to something bad like that and use it towards Abby saying 'Oh, Paige, you didn't point your feet' and that's so not what I was flipping out about. Like, I'm watching the show on Tuesday night thinking... I just want to like, hop on the screen and tell everybody 'That's not how it happened! I'm not really that psycho!'"

** In 2011, a video surfaced online titled "Most Awkward Wheel of Fortune Moment Ever" showing a contestant (obviously chroma keyed) calling an "N" followed by a shot of the puzzle board reading "CLAM _IGGER". After an awkwardly-long pause, Pat says "No N. Hmm..." as if he was expecting it to be there. The video went viral with many debating whether the clip was real or not. In actuality, the footage itself was taken from a then-recent rerun of a 2009 episode, with the letters on the board and onscreen category taken from other puzzles throughout the episode. Pat saying "No N." was actually from the beginning of a new puzzle, hence his "Hmm..." due to "N" being a common letter and a frequent first choice of contestants.

* A viral parody video shows Chef Gordon Ramsay on the US version of ''Series/MasterChef Junior'' using foul language at a child during a critique of his dish followed by shots of the other young contestants with their mouths agape in shock. In reality, the judges are much less harsh towards contestants on the ''Junior'' series than on the adult series and Ramsay almost-never swears (and in the rare moment that he does, it's never directed at the kids). Ramsay's comments were strategically spliced from an episode of the adult series.

Added DiffLines:
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode "Matchmaker, Match Breaker", when Muffy's older brother Chip and Francine's older sister Catherine start becoming really good friends to the point where it seems like they're dating, Muffy and Francine get into an argument and both try to break up the "couple" to spite each other. Muffy's method involves having her butler Bailey call Catherine with a survey of random questions and recording her (obviously expected) answers with a tape recorder, which she will edit into a voice message to send to Chip. --> '''Bailey:''' Is your first name Kate? --> '''Catherine:''' No, it's Catherine. --> '''Bailey:''' Do you prefer pickle-flavored ice cream or chocolate chip? --> '''Catherine:''' Chocolate chip. --> '''Bailey:''' How would you describe your feelings towards liver? --> '''Catherine:''' I hate liver. --> '''Bailey:''' What letter comes after "T" in the alphabet? --> '''Catherine:''' ..."U"? --> ------------------------------ --> '''Catherine:''' ''(on Chip's voicemail)'' Chip — it's Catherine. — I hate — "U"?

* 80-90% of the jokes in many episodes of ''SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' come from the clumsy, often surreal manipulation of interview footage.

* Done in-universe in an episode of ''Series/EvenStevens''. Ren's long-time rival [[JerkAss Larry Beale]] is running against her for class president. He goes over to Ren's kid brother (played by ShiaLaBeouf) and asks him some random questions, with his friends secretly recording the conversation with a videocamera. They then have Larry record a bunch of questions about Ren that make her brother's answers seem like he's insulting or making fun of her. Of course, nobody pays attention to the fact that Ren's brother is clearly sitting in the cafeteria while Larry's background is completely different.
