* Paparazzi are one of BillOReilly's major targets. Which is made doubly hilarious because he is a huge fan of ambush interviews and ''made his name working for Inside Edition, a Live Action Tabloid''. ''Series/TheDailyShow'' played a clip where he transitioned from an ambush interview on a bus to an exasperated condemnation of Paparazzi without pausing.

* In the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series, you get cornered by a reporter named Khalisah Bint Sinan al-Jilani in all three games. In [[VideoGame/MassEffect1 the first one]], she asks you about your mission, but soon tries to make you look bad. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome You can punch her out]], or make her look like "a babbling idiot" (Admiral Hackett's words) when the report airs. In [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 the second game]], she attacks your decisions at the end of the first game, [[SchrodingersQuestion no matter what they were]]. [[TalkToTheFist You can punch her out again]], but if you didn't the first time, [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] says, "[[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything I should have done that the first time we met!]]"

* Played with in the made for [=TV=] movie, "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." A self-proclaimed televangelist targets the titular whorehouse that has been in the town for ''generations'' and presumably not broken any laws or caused any problems, according the the sheriff, played by Burt Reynolds. Said televangelist eventually takes a film crew there in the middle of the night, breaks a padlock on the fence marking the boundary to the property and ''then'' has his cameraman turn on the camera, once the gate is open, to make it look like he's invited. He then proceeds to take his film crew storming through the small mansion, rousing numerous prostitutes and clients, making all their faces public to shame them, and rake in the ratings. The sheriff retaliates by visiting his studio, and then, just out of camera frame, ripping off the televangilist's wig, and decking him right into the camera shot of the singing choir and then calmly walking over his prone form, making it look like he just arrived on the scene before leaving.
