* Inverted in ''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', as the eponymous Guide has "Don't Panic" on the front in "large, friendly letters". [[spoiler: But played straight in the fifth book, ''Literature/MostlyHarmless'', as the latest version of the guide has '''PANIC''' in "small, alarming letters".]]

* ''Film/MazesAndMonsters'' was a movie made to illustrate to parents the dangers of DungeonsAndDragons and how it could drive kids insane, to commit murder and then suicide. It was entirely based on an urban legend. There are quite a few accounts of active Dungeons and Dragons players who credit this movie for ''discovering the game'', as they were not aware that it existed until this movie got their parents to [[DontDoThisCoolThing warn them of its dangers]] and [[ForbiddenFruit willfully seek out what sounded like an exciting adventure.]]

* There is a book called ''Big Porn Inc'' which serves to portray the most extreme, degraded adult material as the norm, with anyone who even looks at a naughty picture is into child and animal abuse and snuff, and the women working in the industry are abused. The authors claim not to be ultra left wing conservative religious however positive reviews are met with comments from them as, "Praise the Lord, another soul saved!"

* British newspaper ''The Mirror'' [[CriticalResearchFailure failed to do their research]] on ''VideoGames/Minecraft'' and turned it into a PaedoHunt, as [[http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/paedophiles-using-online-computer-games-10233554 this article shows]]. However, most [[AdultFear child abuse is carried out by someone who the victim knows]], rather than [[TheSpook a mysterious stranger, like the article purports]]. The article's writers were probably [[ScheduleSlip trying to get it published quickly]].

* The outdoor humorist Creator/PatrickMcManus wrote on more than one occasion about the proper way to panic upon discovering you are hopelessly lost in the woods. He even invented the Modified Stationary Panic, which is standing firmly in place while you scream and jump up and down. This avoids the danger of getting even ''more'' lost or seriously injured if you go with the more traditional "running-blindly" panic.

* A guy came on Dr. Oz and speculated that apple juice was harmful to drink, mostly because of arsenic being found in the stuff. The guy who made the claims never mentioned there are TWO common compounds of arsenic, one harmful to the body, and the other doing relatively nothing.
