===NBC, MSNBC, and Keith Olbermann===
The former host of ''Countdown With Keith Olbermann'' is not shy about where his ideology lies; he has used his nationally known broadcast to disparage conservatives, Republicans, Christians, and anyone else who disagrees with his liberal philosophy. On November 5, 2010, Olbermann was suspended indefinitely without pay by MSNBC for giving contributions to three Democratic candidates without first notifying his bosses, one of whom appeared on his show just after receiving a contribution. Citing NBC policy that states ''"Anyone working for NBC News who takes part in civic or other outside activities may find that these activities jeopardize his or her standing as an impartial journalist because they may create the appearance of a conflict of interest. Such activities may include participation in or contributions to political campaigns or groups that espouse controversial positions. You should report any such potential conflicts in advance to, and obtain prior approval of, the President of NBC News or his designee" '', MSNBC President Phil Griffin gave the order for suspension.<ref>https://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/11/05/msnbc-suspends-keith-olbermann-indefinitely-contributing-democratic-campaigns/</ref><ref>https://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=224525</ref>

"Contributions" to a cause does not have to be in terms of money; it can also involve using the public airwaves. MSNBC has continually presented programming and hosts hostile to conservatives and the Republican Party, while at the same time being supportive of the Democratic Party and liberalism in general. MSNBC currently presents nightly programming similar to Olbermann's, hosted by Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow, both of whom are on record as using their shows in support of Democratic causes. Further, parent company NBC uses its ''Today'' show and ''NBC Nightly News'' in much the same way.

Liberal politician Kent Hehr, formerly a member of Trudeau's cabinet as the Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities before he resigned from that post in January 2018 when reports of workplace sexual harassment surfaced, likewise refused to condemn Freeland's family's ties to Nazism before Hehr's aide, Vincent St. Pierre, ran interference for him and blocked Bexte from speaking to him.<ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cieyPAK7Wz8 Liberal MP Kent Hehr REFUSES to condemn Nazis] at the Rebel Media YouTube channel</ref>
*Liberal governments banned right-wing figures from entering the UK and Australia, and the United States banned Hindu [[Narendra Modi]] from entering for a period of time.
