What particular examples of media lying, or spreading false info stick out to you?

After a few decades of deceptions, like incubator babies, Dark Alliance swatting the truth out of the skies by our leading organs,
and quite a few similar other things I can think of (Operation Tailwind, TANG documents, etc)
cause me to wonder if there is any limit to how much mendacious media dishonesty Americans will swallow or accept?
got any favorite examples of national or local news organizations telling untruths?
or is that just TOO BIG of a category?

record tomato harvest in California drought

http://www.fresnobee.com/2014/11/11/4230288_drought-defying-tomato-harvest.html?sp=/99/217/&rh=1

"Defying the state’s devastating water shortage, California farmers produced a record tomato crop. The harvest came in at an estimated 14 million tons of processing tomatoes. Those are the type used to make sauce, salsa and other products, and represent about 96% of all the tomatoes grown in California."

an interesting snapshot of the immediate dynamics between public demand, profit and resource allocation.
Bit more drought and things will really get interesting around here.
even in the best circumstances, we are headed towards dangerous times
where ag communities benefit very little from their own contributions.
the megacorporate ag world is nothing like the farming we used to do.

talk about security issues.

and Wal-Mart has the keys.
