* ''The Clan of the Fiery Cross'' radio serial put ''{{Superman}}'' against the Ku Klux Klan, with accurate portrayals of their beliefs and rituals. Exposing their rituals and practices to public scrutiny was actually the whole point of that serial -- due to a man named Stetson Kennedy who was attempting to undermine the Klan by exposing their secrets.
** The best part of the story? ''It worked.'' Superman essentially forced the Klan underground both in serial and real life. To reiterate - [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome a fictional superhero forced a]] RealLife [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome hate group underground through sheer charisma]].

* This was the entire purpose of ''Radio/{{Dragnet}}''. Actual police jargon and correct procedures were used. Jack Webb was a stickler for detail, down to finding out how many steps it took to get to various officies at the LAPD headquarters. In one episode, he even recoded a scene at the actual location where the original story took place.
