** Christians who quote the "eye for an eye" doctrine laid out in [[Literature/BookOfExodus Exodus 20:22]] are either conveniently forgetting or never learned the part of the [[Literature/TheFourGospels Gospel of Matthew]] (specifically Matthew 5:38-40) where {{Jesus}} explicitly repudiated that passage (the "turn the other cheek" remark). See also "Vengeance is Mine, saith the Lord" (as in, ''not yours'') in Deuteronomy 32:35 and [[Literature/BookOfRomans Romans 12:19]], and also [[Literature/BookOfProverbs Proverbs 20:22]], which lays it out quite clearly:

* In a very early ComicBook/LoisLane story, a source in a scandal Perry White is investigating offers a prepared statement to Lois, and asks her to witness it by reading it out loud while he records it. But Lois realizes that he's recording only certain words, turning the statement into Lois saying that she saw Perry take bribes. She stops before he can get anything useful, and then takes out the source and several goons with [[ImprovisedWeapon a mop, a bucket, and a candy gun]].

* This is key to a new phone-scamming tactic in which a caller simply asks if you can hear them and if you say "yes," they record that, splice it with a recording of something else, and pretend that you used it to authorize a charge or something. Apparently this actually works, even though any idiot examining it ought to know that it should be obviously easy to do this.

* The second season of ''Podcast/TheBlackTapes'' opens with paranormal skeptic Dr. Richard Strand accusing host Alex Regan of misrepresenting him in this way, citing her leaving out revisions he made to an initial statement of omitting everything he said to try and explain a specific case. Alex justifies her decisions as judgement calls made to keep views balanced and leaving out instances of Strand being too didactic by either leaving too much room for coincidence or having "logical explanations" she felt were just as far-fetched as any paranormal theory would be.

* See an actual scientist or historian on ''Series/AncientAliens''? Odds are that they're responding to a neutral question ("Did people once believe gods lived in the sky?") and that's cut in to make it look like it's providing additional support to what the InsaneTrollLogic theory of the week is that episode. If they say something sounding like it's explicit support for the premise, odds are that the interview was cut off just before the interviewee said something essentially like "...and some people say that, but it is, of course, bullshit."
