* Played with in ''BatmanReturns'' when Bruce Wayne jams the Penguin's microphone while he's giving his mayoral candidacy speech and then plays a tape of him saying, "Hey, just relax! I'll take care of the squealing, wretched, pinhead puppets of Gotham!" and then "You gotta admit, I played this stinking city like a harp from Hell!" As the crowd starts to become angry, the Penguin insists "I didn't say that" - which, FromACertainPointOfView, ''is'' true. He didn't say it ''live'', at that ''very moment'', so Wayne's implication that he was saying those words in front of all those people (and [[VillainWithGoodPublicity obviously]], he ''wouldn't'' have) ''was'' deceptive. But he ''had'' said those things the night before, when no one except Batman could hear them...[[VillainBall not anticipating that Batman would record them for posterity]]. So it's an EngineeredPublicConfession: taken out of context, but not a {{Frameup}} either.

Compare/Contrast QuoteSwearUnquote (fiddling with quotes, but not passing them off as accurate). Also compare ManipulativeEditing. Very likely to lead to BeamMeUpScotty. Despite the similarity in sound, has nothing to do with EnemyMine.

* In this ad for Kellog's Caramel Nut Crunch Cereal, a stock-boy, Wally, at a shop unwittingly creates this effect for himself. A girl comes back to find him sitting around eating the cereal and tells him that he needs to get off his butt and stock it. However, because so much of what she's saying his drowned out by his crunching of the cereal, what he hears her say is "[[SpeakingLikeTotallyTeen I like]] (''crunch crunch'') you, Wally. Like, I'm totally (''crunch crunch'') nuts (''crunch crunch'') about you."

** Quote-mining Scripture itself to suit a particular pet doctrine tends to be a thing among Christian pastors and teachers, which goes back to the original Quote Miner himself Satan, when he twisted a few verses in Psalm 91 in order to tempt Jesus into jumping off the high point of the Temple.

* Parodied in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl4pjEbEydE this]] WebVideo/LasagnaCat video, in relation to the ''{{Garfield}}'' {{Live Action Adaptation}}s. After a straight quote from Creator/RogerEbert's positive reviews of both movies, the video begins quote mining from other, more negative reviews. The quotes start out saying nice things about the movies, then become vague, then scathing, then outright ridiculous.

* After George Zimmerman shot Treyvon Martin, NBC News ran a piece with the 911 call from Zimmerman with a sound bite of him saying "He looks up to no good. He looks black". In fact, they'd omitted some key audio--after he said "he looks up to no good", the 911 operator ''asked'' him "Is he white, black, or Hispanic?" Naturally, [[ImplausibleDeniability NBC claimed this was unintentional, as if there was any way to accidentally delete specific audio from the middle of a police recording]]. And naturally, Zimmerman is suing them for it.

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.
