How to use permeate in a sentence?

  1. Trudy Wade:

    The ‘ mainstream ’ press – where many of us once looked for truth and reliable reporting – have become cesspools of elitism and intolerance, and the troubling lack of ideological diversity in newsroom across the country has sown seeds of hatred for years against conservatives – maybe especially against conservative women, it’s culminated in an unhinged assault on President Trump and anyone who dares to support him publicly. I guess it’s not terribly surprising that the liberal groupthink has started to permeate America’s corporations, too.

  2. Nathan Dunn:

    The guy leading the country and leading the Liberal Party is no longer an absolute climate sceptic but somebody who understands the principles, it will take some time for his thought process to permeate the rest of the party and the government itself, but it's the first step.
