** A similar puzzle is done in the second ''VideoGame/GabrielKnight'' game.
* As in the ''VideoGame/GabrielKnight'' example, there's also a puzzle like this in ''TorinsPassage'' which requires you to manipulate a recording so that someone appears to be saying something they aren't.

Added DiffLines:

** In his ''Daze Before Christmas'' short review, he plays a death montage to show how difficult this game is, and it's the exact same death scene played multiple times, with him exclaiming "Shit!" each time.

** One infamous example is from ''Film/Fahrenheit911'' where Moore is trying to prove a point about how callous politicians are in sending soldiers off to war. He approaches a Congressman outside Capitol Hill and asks if the man would willingly send his son to Iraq. The man stands mutely for a couple seconds before the camera cuts...to hide the fact that the Congressman answered that he has a son who's currently serving in Iraq.

** He showed what a heartless bastard Creator/CharltonHeston was for holding an NRA fundraiser in Colorado shortly after the Columbine massacre and gloating with the "cold, dead fingers" speech to mock the victims. While the NRA did indeed hold an event in Colorado --because rescheduling it was legally impossible by that point-- sharp-eyed viewers may notice that Heston is [[SpecialEffectFailure wearing a different suit for the "cold dead fingers" line]] than he wears in the rest of the footage.

** Another recurring and particularly blatant example is essentially any interview scene with a clock in the background of one or both participants. Mismatched times between the interviewer and the interviewee, not enough time elapsed between answers for the question presented to have been the one asked, time strangely jumping forward and backward in general... some of the complaints are not so much that the editing's manipulative as the insult to the viewer's intelligence implied by how obvious it sometimes is.
