It seems like some people just can't be bothered to do any fact-checking. Let's face it -- sometimes, it's easy to do. But what about the news? Newspapers, a NewsBroadcast, national news, etc.? It is in their job description to do at least ''some'' research, to make sure they aren't stating factual untruths.²²This rule apparently doesn't apply much to works of fiction. Maybe the news media doesn't seem to care as much about it in question as about whatever effect it had. But that's no reason to make an error that could have been avoided by looking into the material a bit, especially if said error involves serious accusations like blaming a child's death on imitating something they saw on TV. This often results in examples either factually incorrect, from minor to grossly wrong like the TropeNamer [[Anime/CowboyBebop itself]], or taking some "facts" from TheThemeParkVersion of a larger entity, which to some is much worse than just not doing the research.²²Subtrope of CommonKnowledge. Compare ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch. See also FandomEnragingMisconception (when it's the ''fans'' who get the names wrong), AnimationAgeGhetto (when people dismiss various kinds of cartoons as family-friendly [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids when they, in fact, are anything but]]) and AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles (a problem endemic to {{Anime}} and {{Manga}}). IAmNotShazam is a key trope involved. Also compare DanBrowned, the version for ''fictional'' works. Also see NewMediaAreEvil, though if you find yourself constantly annoyed by this kind of thing then you probably believe OldMediaAreEvil. May also overlap with a ShallowParody if the parodists in question are really careless with their research. This is basically the RealLife version of CriticalResearchFailure.²²----²!!Examples go in subpages:²²[[index]]²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/AnimeAndManga²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/ComicBooks²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/ComicStrips²* [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/AnimatedFilms Film — Animated]]²* [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/LiveActionFilms Film — Live-Action]]²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/{{Literature}}²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/LiveActionTV²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/{{Music}}²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/MythAndReligion²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/ProfessionalWrestling²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/TabletopGames²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/VideoGames²** ''CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/{{Pokemon}}''²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/WebMedia²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/WesternAnimation²** ''CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/MagicAdventuresOfMumfie''²** ''CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/MyLittlePony''²** ''CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/TheSimpsons''²** ''CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/SpongeBobSquarePants''²* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer/OtherMedia²[[/index]]²²----²->[-"''[[SelfDemonstratingArticle TV Tropes is a TV channel who depicts various clichéd elements]] [[Administrivia/PeopleSitOnChairs where even sitting on a chair is applicable to a work]].
