To quote Encyclopedia Dramatica, "4chan means many things to many people." As such, it's no surprise that there is no shortage of instances in which other media have things to say about 4chan. Here are a few of such instances:
- This is what The Other Wiki has to say about 4chan.
- This is what Know Your Meme has to say about 4chan.
- This is what Rational Wiki has to say.
- And this is what Uncyclopedia has to say.
- CIA Agent Karen Bowman admits that she's been on the site, describing one target as even more toxic than Anonymous.
- Another CIA Agent, this time Carrie Mathison, when the show goes full social media information cyberwarfare, tries to ask for the identity of someone on surveillance footage. She gets doxxed and blackmailed for her trouble and tries to entice the channer with sex, him leading her to a incredibly rapey looking abandoned warehouse to unlock the incriminating files. 4Chan had an absolute field day over it.
