** In the same book, this very same technique also runs the risk of backfiring badly on the producers; one of the housemates is an insufferable [[AnimalWrongsGroup animal-rights activist]] who proceeds to drive the other contestants mad with his ''very'' poor hygiene (he believes that, since fleas are living creatures, it's immoral to kill them and soon the entire house is infected) and hypocritical self-righteousness. However, because [[EnsembleDarkhorse the audience likes him]] his appearances are edited to present him in the best possible light while the others are unfairly made to look like bullies, with the result that much to everyone's horror he gets kept on. However, the other contestants [[GenreSavvy immediately catch on to what's happened]] and call the producers out on what they've had to suffer through with regards to him and the obvious skewing they've been doing, threatening to walk off the project and leaving the producer with the choice of either getting rid of the activist or having him be the ''only'' contestant. Fortunately for her, he once bashed in a girl's head on a protest march and the police soon come a-calling...

* Frequently used as a comedic device on WebVideo/RedLetterMedia's work, both in picking the most embarrassing/silly parts of a film or interview clip to keep showing over and over, and by recutting the hosts' own words to mock them (sometimes with an "Edited by [x]" credit displayed over the footage).

* ''TheGreatestFreakoutEver'' videos are most likely a good example of cherry-picking and "Worst-side filming", since the only videos of Steven appear to be of him throwing a tantrum and his parents yelling at him.

* A popular gag in YoutubePoop videos is to edit a character's dialogue so they end up saying something weird, dirty, or both. This practice is known as "Sentence Mixing" (where single words generally stay intact) and "Word Splicing" (where words are cut up, put together and somehow, it works). For example, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Bl2KyUbewI Robotnik's Face is Politically Incorrect]]'' changes Dr. Robotnik's line "I, the baron of badness, the knight of nastiosity, am on the brink of my greatest success!" to "I'm on the brink of incest!"
** Robotnik's YoutubePoop catchphrase, "PINGAS!" ([[DontExplainTheJoke which sounds like "penis"]]) is also an example: it comes from the phrase "Snoo'''ping as''' usual, I see!" It was discovered by Stegblob and first used in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23pXoyKBHd4 Robotnik Has a Viagra Overdose]]''.

Added DiffLines:

*** The opening scene featured a bank that offered a [[BankToaster free rifle]] for opening a bank and showed him walk in, open the account, and then cut to him in the parking lot with said rifle in hand to imply the bank just handed it to him. Yeah... no. The bank actually did offer a free rifle in the form of a voucher you had to take to a participating sporting goods store to redeem, and you most definitely had to pass the background check and be legally entitled to own the firearm to begin with. Of course that's a pretty reasonable way to do things so the parking lot scene was filmed later and spliced in to "prove" Moore's point.

* Happens in one episode of ''RocketPower'' where the gang is filmed at the skate park by a crew. All of their tricks are edited so close together that it looks like Sam did each trick, when the only trick he did was an accident.
