After a zombie outbreak, the news plays a grainy, low resolution tape of a guy in a biker's outfit releasing the zombies, saying that the one in the tape is Chuck Greene (the PlayerCharacter). This is taken as absolute evidence by ''Every. Single. Survivor.'' that Chuck is responsible.

* A popular (and even [[MemeticMutation memetic]]) example occurs in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode "Buster the Myth Maker." Buster has been going around spreading information he's been reading on the Internet about numerous things, like candy being made out of grasshopper eyeballs and a story of a guy finding a rat in a bottle of grape juice. After a large number of stories, Arthur finally confronts Buster and asks him how he knows if any of this is actually true. His response? "You really think someone would do that? Just go on the Internet and tell lies?"

They thus have an advantage over Americans, who can't tell which parts of the newspapers are true and which are complete lies.\\

* Of course Mr. Krabs has to learn things the hard way on ''SpongeBobSquarePants''. After printing several scandalous issues of the Krusty Krab's own ''Krusty Khronicle'', which features nothing but wild rumors, he incurs the wrath of everyone in town but refuses to stop the presses. Then SpongeBob prints another issue focusing solely on Mr. Krabs himself.
