Similar thing happened in our most recent election (method wise anyway) - at the time, current government was talking of introducing a tax cut for workers. Opposition party said they wouldn't follow through with that tax cut if they were in power, and then Media began running stories around how the Opposition would be taking money from your (the working people's) pocket.

But the reality was things would continue on as they were the day before, no more, no less. Some people ate it up though.
