* ''Series/RuPaulsDragRace'' has what fans have called the "Bitch Edit," when a queen becomes the "villain" of the series by way of making all their lines and actions come off as completely dickish, even though most of the time they A) were asked for their opinion and simply gave an honest answer, B) were responding to a bitchy comment one of the "good" queens made, or C) apologized afterwards. These little details are always conveniently left on the cutting room floor, requiring the queens to explain what ''really'' happened on their social media pages. However, Season 5 "villain" Roxxxy Andrews deserves credit for not blaming the editing for her behavior. She says that the editors may manipulate, but they don't make things up; the bitchy comments that got aired are still things she said, and even though she apologized, saying "sorry" doesn't undo the initial hurt she caused. This was her reason for seeking "[[TheAtoner Rudemption]]" in ''All-Stars 2''.

On the other side of the spectrum, however, another infamous Drag Race villain from Season 4 of the series, Phi Phi O'Hara, has accused the show of grossly abusing the manipulative edit when she returned for ''All-Stars 2''. She claims that when the season wasn't providing a suitable villain for drama, the producers took her out of context and harshly edited her, with some of her fellow contestants backing up at least some of her claims.

* ChannelFour once made a documentary called ''Fat Girls and Feeders'' with real feeders and feedees brought in to tell their stories. According to the feeders and feedees who took part in the documentary, Channel 4 edited the footage to make it look like the feedees were sad and the feeders were abusive.

* An example made on paper The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ems_Dispatch Ems dispatch]], work of our favorite MagnificentBastard from {{Prussia}}, UsefulNotes/OttoVonBismarck. He made it seem like the Prussian king (and later, German emperor) had abruptly rejected the French ambassador, which hadn't been the case...but JustAsPlanned, the French fell for the provocation and declared the UsefulNotes/FrancoPrussianWar. Which also meant that they were blamed for [[Series/FawltyTowers starting it... which is never a good thing, as we know]].

* A documentary hosted and executive produced by Katie Couric called "Under the Gun", in which dead space and pauses were added after the reporter asked questions about background checks, to make it appear as though they had no answers to her questions. However, unedited footage showed they had clear, prompt, and articulate answers to her questions.

However, unedited footage showed they had clear, prompt, and articulate answers to her questions. As a result, Couric and the producers face a $12 million defamation lawsuit from the group.

* In ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'', Ganta gets framed and arrested for murdering everyone in his class. He talks to his lawyer and mostly talks about how scared he is and wondering why this is happening to him. At his trial, footage from security cameras of his talk with his lawyer is played, and Ganta is horrified to find it has been altered to depict him swaggering and incessantly bragging about killing everyone. Since his lawyer is part of the conspiracy, he claims this is the truth, and Ganta has the book thrown at him.

* Played with on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' where Tom Tucker "interviews" DustinHoffman. The interview is Tom's shots, then a reply using a scene from a Dustin Hoffman film. It's not even the same film for the entire interview.

* The 2002 French mockumentary ''Opération Lune'', also released with an English-language narration as ''Dark Side of the Moon'', was created to demonstrate how documentaries can slant their subject using techniques such as manipulative editing. It includes interviews with luminaries including Henry Kissinger, Donald Rumsfeld, and Buzz Aldrin, who are made to appear as if they are talking about the entirely fictional conspiracy that the film purports to be documenting.
