* The entire plot of ''Film/FiveStarFinal''. The ''Gazette'' is a trashy tabloid which does not hesitate to ruin a human life in order to sell more papers. Randall and his secretary Taylor are the only ones who even have a hint of conscience about exposing Nancy Townsend to public shame and destroying her life.

* The various news sources in the ''Xtended'' GameMod for ''[[Videogame/{{X}} X3: Terran Conflict]]'' slide between being legitimate news sources, such as the [[HumansByAnyOtherName Argon Federation]]'s [=GalNet=], to crazy nationalist sources like the [[LostColony Solara]] News Network (considers the Solaran military to be the [[BlatantLies most competent]], downplays corruption, Terrans are literally the devil, etc) and the racist and hyper-isolationist [[PlanetTerra Terran]] Morning News (one article, for example, claims that the Kingdom Of [[StarfishAliens Boron]] may be descendants of Terran aquatic life and [[InsaneTrollLogic therefore are a Terran colony subject to Terran taxes]]).

* Raptor News Network (RNN) and it's chief anchor Bob Barbas in ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'' is the propaganda arm of Mundus' demonic empire, used to keep the human population docile through a mix of lies, banality and outright brainwashing as well as slandering any threats to their control, such as Dante.

* The nation of Luzianna in ''Anime/TurnAGundam'' takes to censorship around the middle of the series to hide the fact that the war against the Moonrace is not going well at all. They don't menace journalists, though--rather, they happily buy up whatever articles or photographs they produce, and then decline to publish them anywhere.
