* In 1988, the Liberal Party ran the famous [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKQPw9vmG04 "Border" ad,]] depicting American negotiators erasing the Canada-US border and effectively merging Canada into the United States. The Progressive Conservatives retaliated with an ad depicting the border being drawn back on, and won the election.

* Following Donald Trump's victory and election, the media doubled down ''hard'' on their notions that Trump is going to destroy America and that he's nothing more than a misogynist, xenophobic bigot. Twitter actively goes after many people who support him or say anything positive in his tweet threads, and more recently, it's gotten to a point where ''how he eats his steak''[[http://www.eater.com/2017/2/28/14753248/trump-steak-well-done-ketchup-personality]] has been used as a way to shove him in a negative light. ''That'' is how badly they want to push the scare campaign.
** Then there's all the calls to have Trump impeached, even though (at the time of this writing), he's done nothing to legally warrant that while in office.

Twitter actively goes after many people who support him or say anything positive in his tweet threads, and more recently, it's gotten to a point where a celebrity just saying they support him can make national headlines. Kanye West, Clint Eastwood, Gene Simmons, among numerous others have been scrutinized just for encouraging him.
** Then there's all the calls to have Trump impeached, even though (at the time of this writing), he's done absolutely nothing to legally warrant that.

** In February 2013, a London baby was attacked by a feral fox and lost a finger. The pro-hunting lobby and its sympathetic media ([[BritishNewspapers The Daily Mail]]) proclaimed this incident is a direct result of the hunting ban which has allowed foxes space to breed and become a real menace. No word from the Daily Mail as to how well a traditional fox-hunt might work in urban London, though.

* The 1964 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExjDzDsgbww "Daisy" ad]] for UsefulNotes/LyndonJohnson's campaign is probably one of the most famous -- and effective -- examples, and is often credited with Johnson's landslide victory over Barry Goldwater. It depicted a little girl picking off the pedals of a daisy, counting each one, before transitioning to the countdown for a nuclear test... with a man's voice with an accent surprisingly similar to Goldwater's ... and then a mushroom cloud.

** The "Daisy" ad only aired one time, on NBC in prime time two months before the election, and was pulled by the Johnson campaign amid a storm of protest. The point had been made however, and (according to TheOtherWiki) some thought this was the Johnson campaign's strategy from the beginning.
