On his popular show the colbert report, the word of the day was wikiality. He said that if enough people think it's true, it becomes truth. He then called for people to say that the population of elephants in Africa has tripled in the last 10 years, that George Washington did not in fact own slaves, and that Oregon is Idaho's portugal. Wikipedia reported tons of attacks from the show's viewers. Many internet integrated people have become show viewers from colberts videos beceing featured so often on youtube and google video top lists. Check out my list of steven Colbert videos.
As much as I love his show, calling on all forum trolls to vandalize wikipedia was pretty jackass. His satirical personality usually doesn't hurt anything, except congressmen in interviews.
