How to use put-on in a sentence?

  1. Sun Qin:

    The merger of SNPTC and CPI is not hot air - the State Council has not yet formally approved it but the two sides intend to go through with it - but other mergers haven't been put on the agenda yet.

  2. Jeff Timmer:

    Their plan is to be a wrench in the gears of democracy, that's their motive. Whatever lipstick or qualifying words they put on this pig, that's what they intend to do, to cause chaos as the 2022 election unfolds, as a dress rehearsal for the even bigger election in 2024.

  3. Johnathan Handel:

    There is an irony to the so-called ‘Peak TV.’ The face that the number of scripted TV shows has basically doubled in the last year or so, it’s a disconnect in two ways: One is writers get paid for writing fewer episodes. The other is that even on these shorter series they get held on exclusivity. They get put on ice, not working for the entirety of the rest of the year.

  4. Arthur Caplan:

    There's a temptation, I suspect, to take the money and run, i can certainly empathize with the temptation to not play ball. ... I just think that's a ludicrous burden to put on the individual.

  5. Robert Kelner:

    I think we should hear from him in the public and that we should get to the bottom of just exactly why was he working with Russia, as a former Defense intelligence agency director, he of all people knows that agency is connected to Russia's intelligence services and so to take money from them and to work with Russian ambassador after sanctions were put on Russia and to lie to the vice president. that's powerful evidence that he knew what was going on and this was converging at the time of Russia's interference campaign.
