[[AC:Something to Hide]] * Used by the CEO of Little Chef when Heston Blumenthal confronted him about his 'nationwide' rollout of Heston's new menu... over ''three'' cafés. * Liz Lemon ''Series/ThirtyRock'' and Tracy Jordan go through gymnastics trying to keep their feuding off Angie's reality show. * A variation in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'': A news network makes it look like Gibbs is pulling this in response to a question regarding a supermodel's death on a Marine base; in reality, Gibbs was never asked the question, and he only ended the interview because a reporter [[MustHaveCaffeine spilled his coffee]]. * Played for laughs in ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye''. Rewind wants to make a documentary about the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits Lost Light crew]], but in order to get permission to do so he must agree to let Ultra Magnus edit it before release. Any footage of Magnus doing something embarrassing ends up replaced with a card explaining that it was removed.
