Media reporting.

"Think Disney is expensive now? Prices just went up — before you even walk in the gate."
http://amp.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article220167835.html

The headline for the article is technically correct (they're raising parking fees), but it's a little misleading.

And the article itself is poorly written and links to a piece from March about Disney charging for resort parking - a move that Disney has (for now) rescinded.

And this is exactly what's wrong with the media today. A sensational headline followed by sub-par reporting, with references to reports that are either wrong or which have changed.

I expect more from the media overall.
