* Australian current affairs programs (such as ''Today Tonight'', ''A Currant Affair'', ''The Bolt Project'') utilize this trope frequently in their reports, though it does not go unnoticed. Whilst the video is at least five years old, [[http://youtu.be/GMVKv3He3Mg?t=1m14s this]] weekly segment from TheChasersWarOnEverything covers real-life examples of the trope that still happen today.

* ProfessionalWrestling does it all the time, specifically to exclude people that have left the company...whether they're working elsewhere, left on bad terms, or...well, you know (ChrisBenoit). A recent WWE example was in the videos used to hype Triple H vs. Randy Orton for Wrestlemania 25. In the part that made reference to HHH and Stephanie [=McMahon=] being married, they used wedding footage with Stephanie and a guy with long blond hair (presumably HHH, only seen from the back). However, that man was actually Andrew "Test" Martin and the footage was from their "wedding" on ''Raw'' in late 1999 that HHH interrupted. Surreal when you consider that Test died not too long ago.

* Referenced in the Creator/BenElton novel ''Dead Famous'' — to draw in ratings for her ''BigBrother''-esque reality show, the producer creates a mock lesbian scene between two contestants (running an unrelated dialogue about finding head massage sensual over footage of one of the women washing the other's hair) and tries to make another contestant look unpopular by splicing together sound clips to have her say that she hates the other housemates.

* Australia's NineNetwork decided to go to war with Creator/GordonRamsay on behalf of their reporter Tracy Grimshaw. 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.

News programs love controversies. Documentaries are more interesting when there's a fight. And RealityTV shows thrive on conflict between the contestants. Theoretically, the conflicts are all the more gripping because they are ''real'' -- no scripts, no second takes, and little editing. Everything that happened really happened, just as it's shown.
