This particular quote mine is so infamous that even creationist sites like ''Answers In Genesis'' advice against using it.

** Not only that, Breitbart, the conservative website which posted the videos, has a history of selectively editing footage to discredit their socially progressive political opponents, and another one of their edited hit pieces led to the federal defunding of ACORN, an organization dedicated to helping those from from low socioeconomic backgrounds with their social issues such as health, housing, voter registration. Two conservative activists posed as pimp and prostitute, and under false pretenses, secretly recorded conversations with ACORN employees, and selectively edited them to make it appear as if the employees were aiding them to break the law. James O'Keefe, the activist responsible for recoding the footage, was later forced to release the unedited footage since California law prohibits recording people without their consent, but by that stage, the damage was already done.

*** Full quote: "Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" Meaning: Don't be a hypocrite.

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" Meaning: Two original meanings: 1) The standards you judge others by are the standards that will be applied to you. 2) Don't be a hypocrite.

** In "The Switch Glitch", yy blackmails Timmy with a recording where he introduces himself, then a clearly different voice says "[I] cheated on my math test". Timmy's reply, "What? I never cheated on my math test!" becomes "I... cheated on my math test!". After turning Vicky even younger than him, Timmy turns the tables on her with the same tactic, making a fake recording where she says "I... stole from my mom's purse!"

He does it again to resolve the plot by [[spoiler: having Vicky read "I'm happy and I don't need my Fairy Godparents anymore" off of a note]].

** One of the more infamous quote-mines to come out in the 2010 Congressional election was the Democratic candidate Alan Grayson portraying his Florida opponent as "[[RhymesOnADime Taliban Dan]]" Webster, by showing (repeatedly in ''one commercial'') Webster saying "She will submit to me" in reference to his wife... except he was talking about ''not'' picking and choosing biblical text to follow, using that as an example. When even [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]] goes after a Democrat, you know they screwed up.

* FBI Director James Comey was fired based on a memo from Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein which does this heavily. Immediately after a reference to Comey's July 2016 press conference where he announced that he would not seek charges against Hillary Clinton, the memo quotes many former White House officials saying that Comey's "decision" was a mistake and showed bad judgment. Most of those people were not referring to that press conference, but to Comey's later decision to announce the finding of more E-mails, which was widely believed to sway voters away from Hillary in the final week of the campaign.

That was the official reason, anyway; according to Comey he was fired for unrelated reasons and the whole affair is now the subject of multiple official inquiries.

* [[spoiler:Ikutsuki]] of VideoGame/Persona3 does this to [[spoiler:a recording left behind by Eiichiro Takeba, Yukari's father. His original recording was a warning that the Arcana Shadows should ''not'' be destroyed. By editing the recording, Ikutsuki is able to manipulate SEES into destroying the Shadows, which ultimately brings forth The Fall.]]

** In the episode "Eric's Birthday", when Laurie is asking Eric to borrow his car, and Kelso hears it as she was coming onto him. The thing is, Kelso's "interpretation" is practically a YoutubePoop, it's so mangled.

* A staple of YouTubePoop is to take innocuous sources, such as a video game cutscene or children's cartoon, and remix the dialogue judiciously for the lulz. Often called "sentence mixing" by the fandom.
