I have now found an example that has got myself a little bit worried.
From 9/11 to Usama Bin Ladens Death to Roswell excetera... We are ALL crackpots, nutcases, fruit loops and whatever other term is used to try and blacken our good names. Now it seems that this little exercise is starting to spill into entertainment programs. Notably the WWE.
I don't know if anyone else here watches the WWE. Many people have their reservations about it for many reasons but to those who do, may know what I'm talking about as I go on.
Currently, there is a storyline involving a wrestler by the name of R-Truth who recently became a Heel (Wrestling term for bad dude!) And for the last few weeks has been yapping about his push, or lack thereof, for a shot at the main WWE Title.
His main gripe is regarding a Conspiracy against him to stop him from attaining a title shot. So what? you may ask. Well, this is escalating into a scenario where we are being made out to be looney tunes. Watch this little snippet from Monday Night's Raw show, fast forward to around 5:30 to see for yourselves. Listen and decide.
Monday Night Raw 23.05.11
You heard that right? Even the good ole WWE is having a dig at us. Yeah I know, some of you may say "Just a storyline" or "It's an angle" but the fact is, at least in my eyes, is a smear campaign in full swing. Considering the WWE has a huge following what better way is there to get to the masses. It's genius.
I'm interested to know if anyone else has any other examples like this flooding into entertainment. Excluding the News of course.
In the words of R-Truth - "The truth shall set you free".
*Mods - I wasn't sure were to put this, so feel free to move*

Speaking of selling books, one prize whoop-bang-bang example of a laughing stock is Mike Bara, author of a book ("The Choice") that contains so many howling errors of fact that I'm surprised it didn't self-destruct right off the presses.
